the one thing about le louvre ... the louvre ... that big-ass museum which in the summer isn't worth the time to wait in line ...

that one.

with the pyramid.

odd place.

when i know security cameras are probably looking for shit all over the place ... i don't make as many photographs.

especially on private property.

i mean ... it's my inclination.

that said ... if i see a photo developing ... i tend to follow it.

i'm sure it's fucking annoying to people with me.

i mean sev ... he got some cool shit with the crowd and the mona lisa. saw him doing it but went to the back of the room so they didn't see two cameras.

a street courtesy? like catching a wave.


close though, 'cept i've never seen two street shooters get into a fight over a photo. waves, yes.

photos, never.

so ... the one thing i noticed is that certain tourists really really really like the venus de milo.

i mean ... she had her own press line ... or so it appears.

yes, i've seen people on a press line with little digis.


i'm sure they can make a photo. ;)

maybe wanker could. i mean ... cameras don't matter.

they don't but ... they kinda do.

what caught my eye, though, in this was the fact there was a woman top frame left with a camera and a guy perfectly in the bottom frame right ... in addition to the others.

um ... besides ... that statue doesn't even have a fucking head.

don't get it.

there was other really cool stuff, though.

Oh man, someone else may have already said this, but this little throwaway just made my day, "um ... besides ... that statue doesn't even have a fucking head."

Amen to that.

I like it. It's often more interesting to see the fuss people make; taking photos and their expressions etc. rather that whatever it is they might be looking at. I almost didn't see the woman tucked away in the top left. I don't often like taking pictures on private property either, especially in museums. In fact I doubt I've ever taken a photo in a museum but I probably would if something really caught my attention. What I don't get is how you can really photograph the Venus de Milo (she does have a head, just no arms, hehe) and not end up with the same shot as everyone else. She won't move, the background won't change, the lighting will stay the same etc. The only way photographing something like that would be worth it would be if it was in an unusual setting or perhaps if you had creative control over the situation like the lighting etc.

No head? What's all the fuss about? :)

Sometimes the best memories from places like this are the reaction of the people in the room to the pieces they are looking at. Clearly, something about this one caused people to freak out.

Nice capture man.
