eh, not too happy with this, but at least it has a good sence of scale. Spent about an hour in the city with my camera stuck out the window snapping shots as my friend drove. It's ok I guess. I like the fact that the people in it are just like, "Whatever" to these giant sculptures. I like the super-grainy look to it, but I'm afraid that people who aren't familiar to typical street photography will score this down because of it. I guess we'll see.

UGH! What a horrible placement. I am disgusted, mostly at myself for expecting people to expect grain and black and white...ya know considering that my last street photography entry placed 21st and was black and white and grainy. Oh well, whatever...never assume things, that's the moral of the story :(

Great perspective on this shot, makes the "aliens" look as large as the bridge - it really does have a 50's sci-fi feel to it.

I thought this was a terrific shot. Love the sense of scale, the little touches, and the overall composition of the frame.

I see this all the time when I go to Giants games, a little noisy perhaps but still interesting to me.

Great subject but the framing is very distracting and the graininess is distracting too. This is a good location to go back to I think.

Hello There! I love the title to this shot, very cute & creative. The grain is a bit distracting tho it follows the creative flow of the pic, i think. Good luck!
