CNN has an article today on Acadia National Park in Maine. Check out their picture of the Bass Harbor lighthouse that accompanies the article and compare it with the one I took myself when I was there.
Although I didn't realize it at the time, I guess I was standing on top of the CNN reporter as I snapped the picture. And now that I think about it, yeah, I do remember a kind of squealing noise emanating from underneath my feet, although at the time I believed it was coming from the trunk of my car so I didn't really bother locating its source.
I really like my picture more than CNN's though. You can see a number of instances where I display my innate instinct for photography, which is far superior to that of the store-bought CNN guy. For example, my stubborn insistence on including the ugly signpost and barbed wire fencing into the picture whereas the CNN photographer seems to have conveniently omitted it. It's all about showing both sides of the story, man, that's what professional reporters do. Anyone can just indulge in aesthetics and click cute pretty things to capture them for posterity. But it takes a trained eye to isolate the ugliness in society and immortalize it for future enjoyment.
