these are good--thanks--the black and whites of people in unconscious imitation of what's around them especially.

[This is good.] I'm a sight-reader, so when I got to commercial number three, I thought it read "MeFi kitchens, tested by animals," which makes me wonder if it's too soon for me to be suggesting new taglines?

Hilarious stuff. How does one build up a porfolio of funny shots like this? They seem so once-in-a-lifetime type shots, I'm amazed someone can capture so many of life's little visual puns.

mathowie: If you go about taking large numbers of photos, and then look at them carefully, you will find an amazing number of funny bits you did not even notice while shooting. My difficulty lies in taking shots of unknown people. I usually feel guilty.

My favorite was the bicycle wheel and millennium Eye photo.

Some were a bit of a stretch, some I didn't get at all, but some of them were priceless gems. Or maybe they're all priceless gems and I can only see this man's genius one third of the time, which I'm sure is my fault.

I can only imagine he goes through roll after roll of film, looking for that "perfect moment".

as one who uses the shotgun approach myself lets all hope he has a digital. Even if he is taking a ton of photo's he's still got a great eye and at least a few of them can be staged (some of the black and whites had some very nice blurred effects). Hell, i'm just curious how he gets peoples pictures without them noticing.

great post

Great photos. Really reminded me of my favourite photographer, the wonderful Gary Winogrand.
