Photographing the Photographer…

A frequent happening in Yellowstone was that if you pulled to the side in one of the turnouts on the road, other folks would also stop and ask what you were taking pictures of.  Thats what happened here.  I was taking photos of these bison, the mountains behind and their reflections in the lake.  This very nice gentleman from Germany asked me what I was taking and I showed him one of my bison reflection photos.  He liked the idea so he went down closer to the lake to take a similar photo.  Just as he was getting ready, the bison formed a very nice line and started to walk away in formation.  I took another picture of the bison and their reflection but I also took this one including my German friend – I think I actually like this one better than just the bison…..

  2. This made me chuckle because that is what I did the other day at a house concert. Photographed the photographer…not the first time the photographer has become a subject !
    Great shot of the whole scene !

    • Thanks Siggi – I’m sure I’ve probably ended up in other photographers shots also….and then hopefully got cropped out

  3. You did not crop out the photographer so why would others do it!. Real lovely action photo

  4. This is a great shot, especially with your words to give us context. The reflection is really cool.

  5. Lovely! I like this “perspective in a perspective” kind of stuff. Like a photographer in a photo, a writer in a novel etc. And this one is just perfect with the bisons too 🙂
