Seeing this shot from JY O’Reilly in our Flickr pool this morning just made me smile. But it’s not only the humor of the person leaping that makes this photo — add the blocks of coordinated colors, the recurring geometric shapes and the great framing, and you’ve got yourself a winner.
It’s hard to tell exactly what’s going between the Reverend Al Sharpton and someone who appears to be a television producer. But whatever it is, the moment has been captured perfectly. Well done Bill.
Another great example from Pablo Benavente of the benefits of always having your camera with you, for those unique moments that you can’t believe you’re actually seeing. Pablo told me via email that he was visiting the Folklife Festival on the Mall when he noticed these tourists “playing with the Port-A-Potties. I mean, I’ve seen people posing with the monuments, buildings, etc., but it’s the first time I’ve seen someone posing with the Potties!” The framing adds another level to the shot: “leaving the photographer out of the frame makes the photo more interesting.”
