We’ve seen the Celestial cruising around the harbor many times from our kayaks, but this is quite a different experience ;-)

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!
