Photographer's Note


The best way to view the pictures is to use the links below.

After the Hardware, the Software.
In other words: after the impression of the buildings, now the people.

Observing the public is interesting, but all the people that wants to earn some money are even more interesting.
There is a rich variation of creatures in disguise: look-a-likes, cartoon characters, naughty girls, alternative types, etcetera who wants to pose together with you for a picture in exchange of some dollars.
I will start today with a small series of KISS-figures.
KISS, the American rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss, and Ace Frehley. Well known for its members' face paint and stage outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid-to-late 1970s
With their make-up and costumes, they took on the personae of comic book-style characters: The Starchild (Stanley), The Demon (Simmons), The Spaceman or Space Ace (Frehley), and The Catman (Criss).

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
