Insolite: When photographers take their job too seriously…

Friday, finally 🙂

This calls in for a slightly different post and coincidentally, there’s one. My friend A.M was lucky yesterday to grab something interesting while walking in the capital.

Let’s take a look at the first picture:


Now, examine it carefully. The police officer stopped the traffic on a pedestrian crossing so that people can cross the road. Except that here, we have a photographer, standing on the road and shooting the pedestrian crossing itself! He doesn’t seem to care about his security or the fact that the traffic has been halted.

And the second pic, shot a few seconds after:


What’s different in here? Other people got time to cross the road but our photographer is still at the same spot, still concentrated on whatever he was shooting lol.

I wonder if he got any interesting shot in there. Keep watching for him.

Happy Friday and bon weekend in advance.
Take care!

  1. Like the above sometimes photographers create strange situations in order to get the shot. Some situations are dangerous and others just plain weird. The question is regarding the result was it worth it. Pro photographers have come back from a war with surprising photos which have historical recognition. Many have been injured or died in these circumstances just trying to record moments in the lives of people. We may regard them as foolish or heroes. So what to think of the amateur photographer, I suppose that this person takes care for safety and surroundings. For me good photos snap a moment in time and are more revealing than a book.


  2. Pa enn contravention pou “unduly obstructing vehicular traffic” (ou kiksoz koumha) ha?

    Bonus question: what the bloody hell is he shooting at?? The paint used for marking the road? His foot? An impossibly rare millimetre-sized spider? Or the hand-held time-lapse exposure of the philosophical dimensions underpinning the fundamental and irreversible effect of time on the ageing and creep of paint on asphalt subjected to intense solar radiation – (ou une autre fécalité de ce nom…)?

    In any case, his dress says much about his respect for convention and social norms: Am doing my FTW stuff, dafuq r u looking at?
