The object of the exercise being 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.

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.
