More sneaky photos


Remember this fantastic place? I went with Micha as a little Philly pit stop on the well worn path between Annapolis and Brooklyn. This time, armed with my camera and a stealthy sense of subterfuge.

(I practiced the famous sneeze and camera click move few times outside.)
















If the natural history police do end up tracing these illegal photos back to me, you will be my one phone call. Plead my case and if all else fails, continue the legacy in my name.

  5. Neat trick, I might give it a try haha! But more seriously, your pictures were worth it, and I will defend you against the natural history police as your noble action was 'charitably sharing information and culture with the geographically disabled'-- nothing wrong with that!

  8. I've never understood the "no photographs allowed" policy at these wonderful places (flash photography,yes). Seriously, do they think we are going to try and duplicate their displays somehow? Thanks for showing us the places for those of us on the other side of the country!!!

  19. sneeze-and-click is BRILLIANT.

    pete and i worked the one-two-punch this weekend at the forest research institute & silviculture museum of india (my god, you'd have DIED. and prally taken much better pictures). it goes like this: he strikes up a convo with the guard in hindi, which surprises the guard (not many gringos speak the hindi here) and then i go about snapping pics of crusty raj-era tree-related ephemera and stuffed tigers. you just might have to stop by bigBANG to see it to believe it. you just might.

  22. I just found this blog and I am bookmarking it to make sure that I never take a photo again: yours have absolutely shamed me and my lack of skills. Beautiful documentation. Lovely.
