Well that would be a no no for the assignment.... I did consider having an over boiled six day old hotdog at one of the stands then going back and then letting go a *big one* to clear some space........
but decided that would be decidedly unkool.....
and not very Rocketman like....
( word of warning, NEVER eat dogs from the stands on the mall, NEVER!) don't ask me how I know.....
Or... Wait for an interesting tourist, and take the shot, including them. Esp. if PS'ng them out isn't within the spirit of the rules.
Years from now, those tourists are how you'll date the photo. Leaving a good one in isn't all bad.
I've even had a German guy looking at a shot of mine, of small-town Ohio, comment that what he finds odd about American cityscapes is the lack of people in them. In Europe, people walk and are visible on the city streets.
In the process of reducing the amount of shots from 300 to only 199 keepers, here's the one I've kept as a temporary screen saver. I like the way the geese seem to be materialising from the light source.
Promise, scouts honour, no more geese, unless I ride up this weekend and get some with the bike in the shot too.
Great photos so far.
19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.
