    How about a post of those pics that everyone probably has that have really become a photographer's cliche pics. I'll start with a shot of the Vietnam Memorial which I think makes a beautiful picture, but it's a shot that everyone probably has done. I invisioned maybe a shot of a reflection of a uniformed military personnel saluting the memorial...perhaps another day.

    I've got one of the vietnam memorial, too, although it's not as good. It was taken at night. Here it is:

    You are so right, no matter how many times I try to get a shot of the moon... even though it's only been twice so far... I still love the results :)

    Hah. Never even heard of it before.


    I got a couple of good cliché pictures in mind, though. I try to avoid taking them myself, so I can't show them off.

    1. parents/family/friends etc. in front of well known tourist attraction, like your grand parents standing in front of the eiffel tower, or you standing in front of the great wall of china.

    2. erotic black/white pictures of the female body, especially if the picture has a pretentious name like "ode to humanity". bleah. spare me, please.

    3. the party shot. dear god, the party shot. you know what I mean, a picture with strong flash of two friends partying, all you see are their drunk faces while the background is completely black.
