Cardigan: Banana Republic
I hate it when I have a location picked out, and then there's some random dude IN MY SPOT. This happened yesterday a bunch of times, and today as well. I was taking some test shots around the EMP yesterday, you know, like positioning my camera on my little gorillapod, taking a few test self-timer shots to see if I liked the angle and lighting before taking off my jacket and doing it for realz.. and then this random guy just walks up. I thought he was going to say something like "oh, don't you just love this angle of the building?" or "Would you like me to take a photo for you?" - you know, something that a normal person would say to someone who is positioning a camera like obviously they are about to take photos of themselves. But no, he stops like 3 feet away from me, and starts taking photos of my background I was just about to use. Seriously, dude? Of all the photographable sections of the building you just had to pick the one that was currently occupied?
And it's not like I could move to somewhere else because it's a little tricky to find somewhere with a railing/ledge at the right height, and that place was kind of perfect. I was going to wait until he left, but I think he was purposely just taking his own sweet time, so I just gathered up my camera and left.
Anyway, today, I went to a little beach spot that I found a few weeks ago, and there's this dude just sitting on one of the logs looking out to the water.. so I had to find an alternate location.
So I walked around and I found this other previously-undiscovered spot. YAY!
But then there's like this office building that kind of overlooks this place and I'm pretty sure anyone looking out the window would see me and think I'm a weirdo. I hate it because they can see me but I can't see them.
Okay, that's enough of James Van Der Beek.
But these are kind of hilarious and awesome. I apologize if you find it disturbing. :)
