No point is suing you unless you are worth a few million.
thirty-seven cents, a half used chapstick, an Excel receipt and some lint.

surely there's something there you want.

glad you liked 'em.

the candid shot of city life is always intriguing
cheers KM. to be honest I HATE, HATE HATE shooting pictures of people. not only am I extremely shy and concerned about potential confrontations, but people are hellishly difficult subjects. candid portraits are waaaaaaaaayyy down my list of things to shoot.

in the first one I was actually way more interested in the dog cos he had a wonderful face. the fact that his owner seemed totally oblivious to the camera turned out in the end to be a major bonus.

the skateboarder was just one of those seize the moment deals. there were all these seriously official signs and crap back in that alley: NO BIKES NO DOGS NO SKATEBOARDS OR WE WILL BLOW UP YOUR HEAD AND GIVE YOU THE ANAL PROBE... etc, etc. I had just been to an ATM and was walking the bike up the alley (silly me, being all law-abiding) when that dude just appeared out of nowhere. I whipped the camera up and shot, unfortunately the low light meant the shot got messed up some with camera shake, which is why I converted it to a faux-lomo. at a 100% crop of the original file the look on the guy's face is pretty priceless, tho why he thought some prat with a bike was gonna turn him into the cops. whatever. I keep looking for the tinfoil, guess it's hidden under the toque.

gee thanks Kram, I'll just reiterate what I said before; it ain't a competition. we are all sharing bandwidth here.

I should prolly eventually look into copyrighting my stuff since I've managed to sell a few shots to crazy people. but then the stuff I load into this and other sites is so low-res it doesn't really matter anyway; it's effectively a thumbnail.

someday I'll get off my lazy bum and print off some more of the original files. the ones I did for the good doctor a few weeks back turned out surprisingly nice.

here is the trials forum i goto alot.. (trials like jump off stuff, not time trials) anyways, alot of people are photo crazy, so here is a thread with a bunch of kick ass ones..

I even posted some of my pics.. sunflowers and my sis.. and some of my gf's pics from europe..

this site is a bit more crude than this one (by far..) they also have a nice "hot chick on bike thread" (read: naked) posted a bit further back.. (they made a second one.. but not much happening.. )
