    I did a job for my company yesterday in which they wanted me to shoot for a groundbreaking ceremony. Amongst the typical shots of speaker x and y, I took these afterwards. Thought I'd share. It's hard to get creative in this type of environment I think.

    Nice shots JohnBoy. I think i like the second one the best, i like it over the b+w version. Not sure why but it just seems nicer.

    It is!
    Don't I know it ... had a similar job only some 3 weeks ago.
    You did get nicely creative with Photo 2, though. I prefer it in colour.
    But all the excavation machinery on that sand hill is nicely placed, too.
    Only can't you be too creative in PHOTOGRAPHING that...!

    Any examples of your "speaker x and y"-shots anywhere? Or must you not post them?

    Thanks for the comments. Lafoto, I just didn't include these originally, b/c I didn't think local politicians would have much appeal on an international forum. Anyway, I guess it rounds out the story. Here they are.

    Heya, AND you got creative on the including-the-local-politicians-photo, in so far as you took that one photo of their letting the sand fall back. I also like that one (and I was interested in how you solved that part of your job because I had to photograph something similar, not quite, but in a way, that is why I asked).
