I'm Famous!

Well, no, not really.  

Sunday evening I was walking around with a couple hundred of my closest photography friends at Trey Ratcliff's world-record-setting SXSW photowalk.  People immediately thought we were paparazzi and were asking us what celebrity we were stalking.  It occurred to me to ask everyone within earshot to crowd around and point their cameras at me.  I wanted to get the sensation that I was a celebrity.  Unfortunately, they were all too well behaved and didn't crowd me as tightly as I had hoped.  But this is what it looked like to have tons of cameras pointed at you.  

Anyway, thanks to all the fun-loving photographers who spontaneously played along for this shot.  I think everyone had a great time on the photowalk.  I know I did.

More fun from this year’s SXSW photowalk. These young ladies were outside hula hooping to attract attention and get patrons into Bikinis Sport Bar & Grill. I asked the ladies to pause their activities for a moment and pose for this shot.

Strobist info: Nikon SB-600 handheld, camera left, triggered via an SC-29 cable. It appears that a strobe from another photographer to my right also illuminated the subjects.
