Corner Detail of Spanish-tile Roof and Street Lamp

Street Lamp and Roof Detail

I will let you in a little secret: I was caught taking the photo of the watchers (the guard and the photographer) so I pretended I was not taking their photo, but rather they were actual visual noise on my attempt to capture the street lamp, the stop sign and the roof detail. It worked, they continued their voyeuristic activities and so did I. Boy oh boy, the things I do for you guys!

So yesterday and today’s photos are the resulting images of the pretense; I hope you like them a bit and not think less of them now. 😉

  • Hi- it’s my first visit here- found you while searching for info on chile cobanero. You have a great photo blog, especially I enjoyed looking at the pic of the pupusa! 🙂 I love these pretense photos- especially now that I know why you took them! I’ll add 1491 to my reading list…

  • That’s a funny (but all too common) story 😉

  • funny story. Must admit having had simular experiences.

  • Jeje, makes me appreciate them even more! I’m a very shy and timid photographer; I’d love to tag along with you for a few days as you go around taking photos.

    Rudy, I like the way you think…nice cover. I must admit I’ve too been in similar situations. Love the street lamp!

    I have used this trick before, especially in Guatemala…never want to offend anyone with photos! I love your photos. Keep up the good work.

  • Oh no! You stole that poor lamp’s soul now… poor soul-less farolito que alumbras apenas mi calle desierta
