I was prompted by Davidbaillie's shot People Watching People
to upload a few of my shots taken in the Rijksmuseum. Today it's of the scrum around the Night Watch. TO-morrow I'll put up some shots of another painting in the same vein. I'll add 4 more versions including one of the painting itself.
The guy in version 2 must have stood for 10 minutes slap bang in the middle of the front row of those wanting to photograph the picture taking the same shot time, after time, after time. Strange.
V3 is representative of what one sees in so many museums. The technique is to stand at the back of the crowd, hold your camera up, make sure it's framed in live view, take the picture and then walk away. Takes less than a minute and you don't even have to look at the painting.
in V4 one character is saying to the other, "Would you look at all those idiots with their cameras! It's not as if we're famous is it?"
