Mine is the empty chair, because as soon as we started praying I jumped up and pulled out my camera that I had stashed on a stool, and turned to snap the picture as quickly/quietly as possible.

My submission is a candid shot of my friend Evan up on a fire escape taking candid street shots in the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C. I guess you could call it ironic that I took this picture, as we were both there to take candid street shots of strangers not each other. Still, none the less, the shot reminds me of the snipers we see a lot of here in D.C. Except, in this case, he's wielding a Canon 70-200 instead of a rifle.

I went out to dinner with my family to Jinbeh (Japanese hibachi grill), sort of a tradition in our family. I was taking video and pictures of us until my dad decided to threaten me to put away the camera. Since our meal was over and we were leaving soon I was going to pack it up, but I noticed the chef making the signature "onion volcano" across from us. I pulled it up just in time to get the flames, but unfortunately not enough time to get some good settings. Brightness, contrast, etc. were fussed around with in Photoshop; other than that no alterations.

Not so much candid as they are oblivious of me; this was shot at a birthday party of two my son's friends. I've been shooting a lot with medium format film these days because of the extreme shallow depth of field that you can get with them that even my 5D Mk II can't reproduce (let alone my K-7 or GF1).

This was shot along the Scioto River in Columbus Ohio. I was walking around taking pictures of downtown and this homeless man was sitting on the bench staring over the river and onto downtown. I watched him fiddle with a tear in his bike tire for a little bit, then sit down looking exhausted. I decided to snap a couple pictures, and then asked his permission afterwards. I used a Canon 7D with a Tamron 18-270 VC lens.. walking away I felt that I spend way too much money on gadgets and not enough on helping the needy.

I took this picture of my roommate at a hipster themed party. After I
got tired asking people to pose for pictures, I started taking
candids. This one was my favorite. While she was mid-conversation I
was able to snap this- she still has no idea when I took it.

I was eating dinner with my family one night and to them it appeared like I was just shooting the glass but my wide angle lens was on so I was able to shoot the whole table without alerting the other diners.

Taken Saturday night in Boulder Colorado at the 1940's WWII Ball at our local airport. 800+ people staring up at the sky watching a trio of skydivers descend with huge American flags hanging below them. I just happen to be standing next to these two.

I took this picture at 5:30 AM Saturday morning just north of downtown Chicago. I had gotten to this pier at 4 AM to catch the sunrise; one of the only other people out at that hour was this forlorn looking girl watching the sunrise alone. After the sun was up a tiny bit, I was able to catch a picture of her still sitting there without her noticing.

My brother came in to visit, thus opening up plenty of photo ops. He was seated in front of the window, allowing the nice silhouette, while he was booming stories about football and government conspiracies. Gotta love him.

This was shot at the Fremont Solstice Parade on Saturday.
So, I put it on f/8, and didn't think about needed faster shutter for moving objects. In retrospect, I should have set a minimum shutter of 1/500, and adjusted the aperture and ISO around that. This is a fast lens that looks good open, so it is extra silly I forgot that.

While our gbaby (grandson) was visiting today, my husband taught him how to use the dog door. He put it to immediate good use when his mom told him it was time to go. He ducked in as she went around the house; and he ducked out when she came back in the laundry room. It took two people to corner him, just like one of our dogs.

Well, while we killed thirty bottled of vino in the process I took some nice shots of the juiced up masses and went along with this early shot taken before the party really started. It's just a sincere smile captured during conversation. And it really conveys a better impression than all these great and interesting dialog-pictures of my tipsy friends along empty bottles.

I was a bit afraid I wouldn't be able to participate in this week's challenge considering the longest/only lens I own, a 35mm, would force me to get awkwardly close to strangers. I decided to try something a little different by yelling at my roommate who was focused on reading. This was his interesting, albeit calm, reaction.

I was walking around NYC earlier this week with my camera, pleasantly enjoying the summer weather when I decided to sit down and take a break from so much walking. I forget specifically where it was that I took this, but there were a lot of tourists around and with a small group there was this very shy looking girl, curiously looking at people around me.

I set up a flash to camera right for a bit of a fill, but I sat waiting. Waiting for that opportune moment. My girlfriend is the one in the picture. She is a singer/songwriter which suddenly had the urge to breakout in song. In an "ode to summer" type mood, she sang her heart out by the fireside. Luckily, i was able to get a few good shots in while she sang a few tunes. This shot, hopefully shows a taste of things to come and a small sample of the good times this fine summer.
