Title: “No Pictures, Buddy”
Caption: “I came across this game of 3-card Monty on the sidewalk in front of Caesars Palace. He had close to a dozen people crowded around and kept everyone entertained as he took their money. Those are $100 bills in his hands.

After I raised my camera and snapped this picture, he said “No pictures, buddy. No pictures, buddy. No pictures, buddy.” I didn’t say a word, but I just looked at him. After all, it’s a public sidewalk. I can take pictures if I want, and it’s not like he’s going to call the cops for interrupting his illegal came. Then his demeanor changed and he said, “Please.”

OK, I’m not heartless. I won’t take orders from a street card shark, but I’ll relent if someone asks nicely, which he did. Personally, I would’ve loved to have made some more shots, but I didn’t see that happening. “

Title: “Elvis On Parade shot with 5D Mark II”

Caption: “Elvis on a scooterbike at the Arlington Parade of Lights on December 6th 2008. Shot with the new 5D Mark II at the super ISO setting of 6400!!!! I used the 50mm 1.4 lens on it. I like the new 5d a lot. I was so embarrassed because my friend said “hey this thing does video doesn’t it….” Well I forgot to skim the manual before leaving the house. I looked and looked at the camera but could not figure it out while in the wild 🙂 This shot was taken only 1.5 hours after receiving the camera and opening the box!. “
