I do like a bit of humor in photography. I’ve taken lots of shots in the past that capture a particular funny moment. Digital manipulation makes it much easier to create these moments (even if they didn’t quite happen). That said, this one is real! I was in the Corner House in Manchester when this guy started putting up letters over the road. He put up the H and the E and we were just wishing for an L or a P. When the P came out (if you’ll excuse the expression) I couldn’t get my camera out fast enough. It is said that the best camera you own is the one you have with you. Turns out it is an Olympus XZ-1.
Personally I think he could have just yelled if he needed help but it turns out he was actually putting up ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’.
