What's a cheese steak? Holy moly, it's only a little piece of heaven here on Earth!

Street photography in the best sense of the word, and a puzzler to boot. This shot has it all: people doing their own thing, abandoned store front, pay phone, ATM... What are they up to????

I don't vote challenges much anymore, but I'd have voted this highly. Great shot.

I've just realized that it's not a b-ball. It's a balloon. I thought he was taking a free shot. I give him the point anyway.

This picture grows on me every time I see it. It's a spectacular capture. At first, I really hated the guy in the foreground, but now I think he balances out the composition. Anyway, I still have a yellow ribbon left, so here you go:

The Posthumous Yellow Ribbon. ' . substr('//blackyak.com/dpc/yellowpost.jpg', strrpos('//blackyak.com/dpc/yellowpost.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I always like photographs where part of the picture is outside the frame. Can there really be a hoop up there, in the street? Or another guy a few yards out of shot? Or just a wall, and this is a solo game of dreams? The other two men are indifferent ... city life, I guess. And one other puzzle: what the hell is a cheese steak? Sounds revolting.

Unfinished photography; it's the best kind. 7.

Now... WHERE have I seen this before??

Okay, I'm really not sure what this has to do with being puzzled. Maybe me being puzzled about why this supposedly represents being puzzled is the trick? So I suppose it does qualify, but in an awfully roundabout way ;) Not the best street shot I've seen, but it is kind of funny to watch him chase that balloon while the guy next to him just looks so bored. What's a cheese steak? That sounds icky.

The components of this image appear very artificial and incoherent, but I can't quite work out what's in the original and what's added. I'm afraid it doesn't work for me.
