Can You Hear Me Now?

Construction worker taking a break in Philadelphia.
Actually I was trying to get a shot of the skyline when this construction worker who was deep into is phone call stood in front of me. I chose to take the picture with him in it, and to be honest I'm glad he stood there. Now he should go fix the crooked buildings. ;-)

Most unique everyday life photo, James. I agree with you, its better than just a skyline. Although you do that perspective very well too...

I really like your water love shot below :)

I was annoyed the other week at VF when a woman would not move out of MY way of taking a picture of the arch. I was so far away, she had no clue... but still! When I looked at the picture, I really liked it, because of the stance she had. (I think she was waiting for her dog to take care of business!) Sometimes the people just work!

I think he adds another interesting element to your excellent picture.

I was angry at people walking in my photos, but then I realized that they really add something of real life to a frozen image of building. Very good shot, perfect with that worker!

Agree the guy enhances the photo. I took a photo that appeared on my blog of Belgrade's Honey Fair. I had meant it to be a sneak shot of the seller, when two guys walked in front of me (partially) with umbrellas. The photo was the better for it.

Do you know we have exactly the same kind of colorful tourist signs here???

I think he adds a lot to the picture! It's a wonderful city scene and I like those murals on that building.

Oftentimes people in a photo MAKE the photo. That's a busy road; it doesn't look like traffic is moving at all. I like the squared off, triangle topped and pointy buildings in the background.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Colonial Williamsburg. Our drive is much farther than it would be for you. It took us 10 hours to drive home on Tuesday! I believe we could have made it home in 8 hours, if we would have stuck to the Interstates. We prefer driving the lesser traveled roads.
