Back to point.....Asians taking pictures is a phenomena that has always intrigued me. I believe my fascination began when I went to Disneyland when I was 6. I think it was the first time I was exposed to Asians in mass numbers....which is intimidating. I remember thinking, "Seriously....is he really taking a picture of a garbage can?"
My recent vacation to Washington DC, reminded me of my trip to Disneyland. Asians dominated Capitol Hill.....with their bodies & their cameras. While I did get a few great shots from my trip...most of the pictures I took were of Asians....taking pictures....of more Asians.
It seems that Asians taking pictures is an art form. In addition to taking an offensive length of time for each picture.....there are several stances to getting the perfect shot. Forget tripods....we Asians are extremely flexible & can easily maneuver our bodies into tripod form. Not all of these are from my trip, but these are a few of my favorites.
#1. This guy was everywhere....yelling directions & working up a decent sweat in the process.
#4. She can't possibly be comfortable. Are those Gumbi's legs?
#5. I cropped out the other Asian who was taking pictures of her....shoes.
#6. This form is for those who also wish to get a leg workout during photo shoots.
#7. This is for those who do not anticipate throwing their bodies into tripod form & later decide the shot needs a lower angle...but already committed to not tripod-ing themselves....& therefore resort to the awkward lean-and-step-back form.
#8. Wait a minute....he's not Asian....but his form deserves honorable mention. His back end needs to stick out a bit more....but as he is not of yellow skin & also has no butt whatsoever....perhaps this was not possible.
#9. This guy was squatting so low.... it looked like a traditional Russian folk dance....awesome.
