The “Hip Shots” series of Doodlemeister.com photographs will feature images that were grabbed “on the fly” with little or no regard for framing and focus. The object of the exercise is to create dynamic pictures, not perfect ones. With this ” shoot-from-the-hip” method, the more frames exposed the better the chances are that you’ll come up with something interesting — a related series that can be arranged as a post. If you’d like additional tips for using the technique, or to submit your own pictures, drop a question or note in the “Leave a Comment” section, below. Meanwhile, click the “Hip Shots” tag above for many more examples. This feature will appear most Fridays.

Wall Street Marches On
Recently, I was in downtown Baltimore at lunch hour and overheard the following exchange between two young business men, one carrying an attaché case and the other smoking a cigar.
Attaché Guy: You were at the annual meeting, you saw the problem. Absolute transparency is the only ethical solution to that pervasive lack of shareholder trust.
Cigar Guy: Well, give it a try, but don’t tell Corporate what you’re up to. You know it’s easier to be forgiven than it is to ask those guys for permission to do the right thing.
