Sometimes you just have to do it – the cliched shot is right there, waiting on you to make it. This was, of course, one of those times.
(PS – I used DxO’s Perspective Efex plug-in to get those verticals all lined up – it worked great and you should try it, if you’ve got verticals that aren’t, you know, vertical.)

What’s happening? Yesterday my post had a half of a person in it, and today there are two whole people. Wow. Believe me, I am as surprised by this as you are.
I sat in this spot for a while, watching a steady stream of people perch on that stone ledge to have their photo taken. Most of them were in poses similar to the one here, which made me start to wonder how they all know that’s The One Right Way To Sit – is there a guidebook or something?
But these two had an added value, of a sort, with the photo-taker also striking a pose.
