This is great. So self-referential. And an Aykroyd.

I feel obligated to point out that the owner of that butt-crack was a very attractive Japanese girl.

Awesome theme! And great photos, as usual.

Ahhhh, New York. Nice.

What a lovely photo essay! Anyone can get an image on a point-and-click, but it takes something else to get the real stuff.

Hilarious observations Rick... humans are funny creatures, aren't we?!

Darren said...

What, no thong?

What a fantastically fun set! Did you take them all on the same day?

Rick Lee said...

Chocolate Hug... I shot these in about an hour one morning last week. If you set out to take pictures of people taking pictures in Times Square... it's a target-rich environment.

Fantastic set of photos.

I love this series. I took an even better whale butt picture recently but I am afraid it would embarrass (no pun intended) the person in it and just can't bring myself to share it with anyone. I like the idea of the tourists becoming the attraction and when I look at this it seems irresistible and obvious that they are the most interesting visual experience.

Great set. I hope I remember to turn around next time I'm at a point-and-click destination.

It never fails to fascinate me how many people don't bother to take the marketing stickers off the front of their cameras.

Nice collection and theme. Shooting other photographers shooting is always a temptation, but I've never thought of making it a collection. Great work, especially those with odd expressions.
