Yu afabeti fuurr schu ting?

Yayfun! Photos from my college trip! All were taken in New York City. We started in NYC and ended back in NYC at the same hotel. Unfortunately, the night before we left the first night, one of the maids moved my camera to the closet when she was setting up the couch-bed. Out of sight, out of mind. I realized we had left him (yes, him. His name is Mark, after the photographer from RENT) when we were in the airport and I was counting my bags. Fortunately, I got him back, safe and sound, when we returned to the hotel at the end of our trip. ::hugs Mark:: So here are my favourites from the last day in New York City.

The subject line, "Yu afabeti fuurr schu ting?" was the utterance of a man sitting in a bench at the park I shot at. After asking him to repeat it a few times, I understood that he was asking "You have paid me for shooting?". Fortunately, I hadn't taken any pictures of him, so I was able to avoid an otherwise sticky situation. Anyway, "Yu afabeti fuurr shu ting" is the phrase of the day.

Poisoning Pigeons in the Park!

I love your people studies! The Music Man, the little girl, and the old wemen are terrific. And I absolutely love that dude with the hat!

I also like Chairs #2. 'Lots of chairs' is right!

Airports are also terrific places for people studies. I'm always afraid to take photos of other people, though, for fear I'll get in trouble (ESPECIALLY at places like airports, where there may be people with religious/phobia beliefs about cameras). I once saw the greatest photo at a 'port: it was a young black man sleeping on the floor in a terminal - wearing a suit - with one leg propped up onto a seat. Unfortunately this was about two years ago, and my brother had the camera and refused to give it to me. *scowl*

Those are great photos. I took photography for a semester this year. I'm glad to say though that as the semester progressed, my works got better. (I got As on my last two projects!)

I love the old man w/ the hat. That's just so great.

BTW, I got Feet of Clay for Easter. I was excited, seeing as I could never find a copy of it at the library or bookstores near me.

Oh, and while cruising the net for HP stuff, I stumbled across a Draco shrine that's all in spanish and under fanart there was that Draco bookmark you and Starling did. http://www.dmalfoy.hpg.ig.com.br/fanart.htm Though I've taken Spanish for three years now, I am very terrible at it and I think they gave credit, or didn't claim it was their own.

Now where was I, oh yes, my point. I just wanted to congratulate you on breaking the language barrier. As we can see, Harry Potter is bigger than different languages. I say we just create a new language that the entire world speaks and name it after Harry Potter.

Gawd, I've been over-obsessed w/ HP lately.

Anyways, I LOVE your photos, I wish I was 1/10 as good as you. I wanted to try people-pictures. Unfortunately, people would always see me and a) give me an uncomfortable look or b) run and hide. Haha, keep up the good work.

Re: From Brenna

Why thankee! And I hope you enjoy FoC. I adore FoC. Probably the funniest Watch book, at least. ::hearts Cheery::

As for the bookmark, I went to the website, and they credit it as "Starling". Honestly, it doesn't really bother me anymore when people only acknowledge half the collab team. Because Starling is so well-known, if it really did bother me, I would have had a mental breakdown by now. The sig line thing is intact, so viewers can see that I had a hand in its creation.

Harry Potterese? Hey, maybe I can place out of a few years of Foreign Language in college now...

Re: From Brenna

Haha, I just found it funny that the page was in spanish. What can I say, I'm amused by little (but mostly stupid) things. After this year I plan on doing my part to make this world a more literate place by never taking Spanish again. I think I've mastered only 4 of the millions of tenses we are supposed to know. Hehe, anyway, keep crankin out the awesome art and making me even more jealous.
