iSpy an iPad

By SlowSong
Another snap from the Natural History Museum. I liked all these little creatures crawling up the walls and this one seemed to be spying on the guy with the ipad. I waited for someone to pass into the empty space at the back and the chap in the subdued clothing kindly obliged.

Been chucking it down in London this morning but now the sky's clear and the sun's out. A pub lunch is in order I think. Smile
Update - as soon as I typed that a thick blanket of grey cloud came rolling over.

Thanks for dropping by.

How co-operative of your two 'models' to pose perfectly for this, Chris. I wonder how many people have never even noticed those creatures watching their every move?

Not exactly silly but it did make me laugh--- people carry those things around to all sorts of places-- the silliest pic willl be someone using it as a camera---

Quite spooky, Moira aka Chris. Very Dr Who and very spotted and composed.

I haven't invaded your pf, honestly I haven't! Though I'd love to have taken this, it's my sort of shot. Quirky and funny. I like the idea of two different characters spying on your subject. Well three, including you.
Given the location I assume that this was hand-held (or camera propped on a banister) - in which case particularly well done!

Hand held Moira, but thank goodness for the tilt screen. I rarely use it but it came in very useful here. I was on the bridge where the bit of tree trunk is. Had to hold the camera up high because a wall got in the way. Smile

And thanks again Jenn! Didn't expect any awards for this one, so particularly welcome. SmileSmileSmile

Thats' a fine piece of opportunistic photography. I'm glad you went for colour with those lovely tones although I'm sure it would be very good in BW as well. Superb!

I've been wondering about b&w here. By removing the colour distinction between animate and inanimate you would add to the ambiguity...
