the Tenin technique

Please click image to enlarge

Chasing the “Tenin Technique”, I put my camera on the step of an escalator travelling down (not a good idea, don’t try this at home!) and kept the shutter button depressed. Above is the unexpected result, a random life freeze frame reinventing the reality of every day’s life at Khartoum Place in central Auckland.

My personal thanks to Eric for introducing me to the wonderful Daily Photo community!

Today the Daily Photo community pays tribute to Eric of Paris Daily Photo by emulating his shooting technique.

    Have been looking at the pic for a while and several of the people that walks looks down. Why is that? People doing that across the world, it would be nicer to look up and give away a smile. =)
