Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Two Subjects. I’ve already posted one response to this challenge, but I can’t resist having another go.

A few days ago we had occasion to take the Circle Line boat ride around Manhattan. The boat was packed. I came ready with my camera. But I couldn’t decide whether to focus (figuratively as well as literally) on the magnificent sights of the city coming into view one after another, or on the activities of other passengers. They, too, were snapping photos of the sights but even more of each other…

You just know what is to the left of the frame in the next photo, don’t you?

That’s right—the money shot!

  2. Thanks for the memories. I made that trip many times over when I lived in Brooklyn; and the Statue of Liberty always warms my heart. I miss NYC!

    • We enjoyed it quite a bit. We’ve followed that exact same route many, many times on our Manhattan circumnavigations by kayak, but it was interesting to see the same sights from a different perspective, a bit higher off the water…. and letting someone else worry about avoiding the barges and water taxis for a change!

  6. I once took and posted a picture of the backside of the Statue of Liberty just because nobody ever shows that view!

  8. Ahhh, Vlad, so much fun, laughing to myself right now that I just used Lady Liberty in my Two Subjects photo, great minds think alike or fools seldom differ, hope it’s the former ;-) Great photos, great money shot! :)
