so you deleted the other two? (that is the trouble with feeds - nothing gets really deleted, ;-). i do not know why you deleted two, but I liked the three photos very much. If I wouldn't know better, I would think the Swiss are a very sad and earnest people.
I might post it again... will see. Sorry you are right though... I didnt like the "noise" on it and even though on this blog I wanted to post them as I saw them I thought even that one was a little much... I have another "sad" one coming which will sort out the "feed"..... it was only one by the way... I think.
Hm, but noise works very well with your photojournalistic ( I do not know if this word really exists, sometimes I just make them up, ;-)) style which I quite like. Most of the time I am much to shy to take photos like this - even with a tele ... and noise is the price you pay for getting these "sad" photos. Noise sometimes is not so bad ... as long as it underlines one's style and as long as it is not too much, okay ... ;-)
I am too shy too, therefore I have become a covert operative, lurking and sneaking around.... no, generally I try and take a photo of something near them, then point directly at them, smile sweetly and pretend like I do this all the time:::))) so far so good... worst part is that I am not trying to get "sad" photos, I think people are generally nowadays...
