Turning Everyday Moments Into Movie Scenes (12 photos)

Photographer Dom Cruz has a knack for taking ordinary street scenes and turning them into movie-like moments. Snapping candid shots of unsuspecting people on the streets, Cruz sees drama and mystery that most of us might miss. What you can appreciate most is that his photos ask you to figure what happens next. For instance, whether that pretty girl walking on the street (seen above) bumps into her long lost love or gets hit by a random bus is all up to you.

Alone “I love street photography. I like to capture real moments as they happen on the fly; taking everyday mundane moments and turning them into cinematic movie scenes. I like the challenge it presents and not knowing what I'll get or who I'll meet in the process. From time to time I'll take the odd photo of a car or a building, but it's mainly people that are my usual subjects.” – Dom Cruz Dom Cruz
