Cheeky Grin by 3wyl Cheeky Grin by 3wyl
I shot this in London at the Thames Festival, the same day I captured My Element.

This guy... heck, this guy was so awesome. I've got loads of pictures of him doing all sorts of expressions. What I found to be most profound was how still he remained, and not in a comfortable position either. Sometimes, he was bent over at odd angles and yet he kept utterly still.

It was a bit scary, actually. ^^;

Nice shot overall, and it looks kind of creepy too the way he's grinning. I hear those people practice and train to stay in one position for hours on end without moving. It's something I've practiced for Halloween, just standing sentry like that.

I took a lot of shots of him, but chose this one to upload partly because of his grin. :P

Really? Did it hurt? Whenever I watch these people, I feel like the positions can't be all too comfortable... I don't know. I'm not good with staying still. ^^;

AH I see. And it got you a DD too. Congrats.

No not really. It was just me relaxing there for a while, waiting for a trick-or-treater. When a small group did arrive, I hadn't moved yet and they thought either I was really good standing still, or a prop on the lawn. :lol: 

It takes practice I guess, and not thinking about it.

Thank you!

Ah, I see. :nod:

That must have been quite fun? :D

Yeah, not thinking is the key, I imagine. Sadly, I think too much. >.>

Yes they are. It helps too when it's hot as it's not constricting to you.
