suavest blokes at the protest [Jan. 29th, 2003|09:56 am]
Roy Janik
Here's a nice little image from the online edition of the Statesman:

Two things of note about this picture:
1. James, Eric, Dave, and I are in it, and
2. How the hell did they take it?

Thing of Note #2

by boat IS the most obvious answer and quite possible. but judging by the other images this photographer shot - those that ran in the paper edition - i would say by boat is unlikely. he was present on the bridge for those shots and arranging to move from the bridge to a boat would be difficult - unless he had one waiting. of course, he could have moved the other way - the paper images do seem to have been taken closer to sunset. but the angle of view of this image is too high for having been shot at water level to the bridge. also, if you have ever gone to watch the bats fly you will know there are many vantage points along the banks from which to do so - many higher than water level (the four seasons hotel, for one). then again, Rodolfo Gonzalez (the photographer in question) is usually a god among men (and women) when it comes to things photographic, so maybe its magic. but that's just my opinion.

-your friendly neighborhood freelance photographer.

Re: Thing of Note #2

They took it when we first got there, when we were on the East side of the bridge. They took it from out in front of the fucking Statesman.
