  8. Great capture! I seem to only get the backside of a moving target like this. Aren't the streets of New Orleans full of characters and photographable moments.

  15. Wow, that's just fantastic. I always find the people that do this so amazing, and your photo really captures him. The sense of motion in the stillness.

  18. Loving it. Of course, if I were to encounter him in the real world I might find it a little unsettling. Until I started shooting anyway. ;)

  21. This is an advance request for a Black and White for Dummies tutorial the next time I see you. Not in determining which shots to take in black or white but how on my friggin 'camera to make the shot black and white. (I'm pathetic but thank you in advance.)

    Awesome picture.

  24. Wow! How long does he have to stay like that? I hope the pay is good. My arms would fall off.

  26. I hope it was a pedestrian area - or it would very soon have been a DEAD statue...
