The Council Meeting

The city council meeting. I was there to possibly take a couple of photos. Things droned on .. and on .. and on .. and on. I couldn't make eye contact with anyone I knew because they were all making faces at the interminable length of this portion of the meeting. Zoning ordinance discussion. In detail. I began to wonder... Could I take a voyeur shot of the mayor and council, camera in my lap and only semi-aimed? Yes. Yes, I could. And I did. It was the high spot of the night. Except for the note I showed the woman who is head of recreation:
Eye yam sofa king board.
She almost spit.

Nikon D70
1/160s f/7.1 at 18.0mm full exif

Donna, when I saw this shot the first thing I thought was, hip shot. Nicely done, I have many shots of ceilings and tops of heads trying this technique. By the way, you need to regenerate the thumbnail on this image.

Is anyone awake? The looks say it all... and we can't see your, or the rest of the public galleries faces to judge their level of comatose-ness. Like the note though :)

Great shot. I have wanted to do this for some time now....but,,,,,I am the Planning Director for our town. They probably wouldn't think to highly of that if I did it. The meetings do tend to go on & on & on....Mike
