Randomness from the past week

I was told to go out and get a shot of the fall, here ya go.

This guy was a blast, he makes bird houses, bee boxes and turtle teepees, he said he was interested in my socks and we talked etsy a bit.

Another reason I don't like Walmart, they wouldn't let me go in and follow these two characters buying gifts for veterans at a hospital. They were good sports and fun to get to know.

October and breast cancer awareness

Climbed a couple of flights of stairs a scary ladder that went a little more than horizontal to cross a wet slick roof to get a shot that never ran.

I still like it.

Face vs Crowd

There is a constant discussion...fight...tug o' war about using face shots vs crowd shots. My opinion on the subject is that if the crowd is huge, unplanned for or in another way news worthy than run that one. If the crowd is the story but if what the crowd is doing is the story then run the faces, show what they are doing, why it is so important that it got coverage in the story.

A recent assignment had me at a local "blessing of the pets", there were probably 30-40 people with various animals at the local catholic church, nothing unexpected. I provided tight, medium and a wide crowd shot.

Which one would you use?
