I often stand across the street (42nd St) from Madame Tousaud's watching three doors that always have posters of wax statues in the museum. With my 100-400 loaded, I wait until the right person walks by, and "grab" the shot, often after hours of waiting.
On this day, several years ago, the poster of Evander Holyfield had been "grafitied" to give him a broken nose and cauliflower ears. A man walking by became so involved with the poster that he actually gestured to it as if to say, "What happened to you?" His warmth and humor were compelling. Very soon he continued on his way, but couldn't resist gesturing again. I got both photos, but I feel that putting the two of them together in PhotoMerge captures the essence of the whole scene. I'm sure the montage violates the "rule" of street photography, but the creation appears to me to underline the spirit of the man in interaction with the poster.
Comments are welcome.
