Scenes - and people taking photos of them

If you ever find yourself at a very scenic location - but you've been there a number of times already and feel that you've exhausted all possible angles and light situations - you may want to try turning your camera on the people gathered there and see if you can create something interesting.

The scene itself (not that unique or exciting)

The same scene - but now with an unknown photographer taking a photo of it

Now, if that makes the photo 'worse' or 'better' depends on your own personal taste - but if you feel you've 'done' all you can at a place it's always fun to try something new.

(Both photos taken with a Hasselblad 500C/M, 80mm Planar lens and Tri-X 400 - and no, it's not the stealthiest camera for candid snaps..that mirror is loud).
