This reminds  me of the 'incognito' series of Damien C.

Now this I like! She is prepared for the worst - namely a sudden downpour in the streets of Dubai - while studying the chalk-white faces of the kids who are so happy to start a new term. Is this a white-faces-only school? Or were they just ignorant when they made this up? For all I know, there's no segregation in Dubai. If there were, then I'd love to quote Martin Luther King. :-)

She? That's a guy, B.  :roll:
Now, pray tell how you came to that conclusion, so I may accuse you of being a sexist. :D

That's a GUY???!!!

For just a short moment, I asked myself if this is a he or a she, but then decided by the way the feet are placed on the sidewalk, it must be a she. And the bag would eliminate any remaining doubts. As would the umbrella.

Damn, for some the time for a sex-change was never better than today! :D Or, to be poisonous, it should have happened a long time ago. I'm living prove that men can be bitchy too!! :D :D

Love the shot...and really remember this time of year so well. By the dog days of summer I couldn't wait to get back to school...it just got too boring playing with the same friends day after day.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful shot K-man...brought back memories :thumbsup:

Yeah, man. What's up with that?
Kids are supposed to be these adorable gooey things. 
But then you come across one that looks like the word, Ugly, was specifically created to describe this...thingamajig.
You jump back in horror at the mere sight of it and you yell, "What sort of ghastly creature is this?"
Then I hear my Mom from the kitchen. She says, "Oh, that's a picture of you when you were two..."

You make me laugh right out loud! When you get old like me you will miss that stuff! Now my grandkids Skype me with their excitement and how they like the teacher, etc. Not the same but close! By the time you are "Grandpa" tech will be so amazing that they can take you to class with them and their Galaxy Gear Watch edition 2030! :D Mr. :boogie: parents! :heart:

Yep! I know you will! :D  I do, too! Maybe 1 1/2 steps. Shucks, my 8 y/o grandson, Lucas, is 1 1/2 in shorter than me and his feet are bigger than mine. Can't outrun him, but can keep up with him so far. Of course, I keep Motrin in business on those weeks when we are together! Too many years pulling and pushing patients and stretchers and pulling people out from under overturned vehicles, etc! Not complaining, I was living my dream so it is worth it! Yaya says: it's a lesson in life. Take care of your back and knees! THEN you can stay 2 steps ahead! :D :heart:
Have you seen the video on the Gear watch release? Here's the link. Watch this!

Yes I have! 
I've been closely following it's development, up until it's big reveal -- I'm a huge techjunkie. :D 

Pulling people out from under overturned vehicles?! 
Were you in a rescue team? 
Far out!

Wonder how I knew you would know what I was talking about? :D Welcome to my world. My kids all were on computers by 4. My oldest had an original Atari and could beat me at Space Invaders by 6 yo. His kindergarten class got speed typing lessons from a Mom of 1 of the kids. My youngest son has a computer security business and is neck deep in techjunkie. lol He keeps me in the know. :D
I am a retired Trauma Nurse Specialist/ Flight Nurse/ Paramedic. I have > 12,000 hours in pre-hospital rescue helicopter time on the busiest pre-hospital flight program in America and on international jet transports. I helped start 3 programs and first flew in 1976. I ran a program for years, then was a partner in an international medical transport company out of Clearwater, Fl for a while. I have visited 24 countries, mostly to transport very sick people to higher care in another country. Met lots of amazing people in unGodly awful situations. I still have contact with several patients I flew from their accident scene to my Trauma Surgeons. Some of them came to my son's wedding a few years ago. They are like my kids kinda, except my kids didn't get to have skateboards til they were 14 because I scraped other people's skateboarding kids off the street and flew them to help. My 2 oldest kids were both flown as patients in my choppers after being in horrid wrecks. 1 was in a school bus that was overturned and the other in my new 2 day old Celica which was totaled trying to miss a bike with 2 12 yo kids in the dark with no lights and street lamps not working. Kids were fine, but nearly lost my 19 yo. That's why my philosophy of life is what it is. Do it today! Whatever it is, don't put it off. Tell the people you care about today and every day. You never know. Don't assume there is time to do it later. I still call my Mom daily. She's 84 and will, no doubt, outlive me, but I call daily. I keep Skype in business with talking with my kids and grands. Hug Jamal daily!!! If not close enough, call him to say I love you DAILY! (143 works too and no one will know what it means so he won't be embarrassed. 143 is the # of letters in each word of I love you.) Yayas know the secrets of life. 
:D  Bye now Google Gear Guy!  :heart:

Fascinating! Do you have a secret identity, or does everybody know that you're a superhero/supermom? :lol:
What an amazing life you have - scary as heck, but awesome too!

My Mom's also a retired nurse. Over 35 years on the job. :heart:

Fave...

Well seen...!

Great Constellation...

Light Gate...and heavy figure...

The shadow from the umbrella...

Street-and all other shooters...

welcome your much needed New term: "Umbrellography"...!

 

Greetings Khuram...Jakob.

I agree. Umbrellography is indeed a great term for Street and other shooters.
Especially for those of us who own cameras that aren't weather-sealed.
Umbrellas come cheap. 
Come rain or shine, they keep you cool and dry.
But come gust, and they're Gone With The Wind.

Traitors, all!

Cheers, my friend.
