mammoth for sale

dscf8880-mammothforsale-blackandwhite-cropandtweak-blogDo a lot of people just walk down the street with a spare 900 bucks burning holes in their pockets, see this display in a jewelry store window, and say to themselves “You know, what I really need today is a mammoth tooth and its accessory jaw fragment.”?

One of the oddest things I saw on a recent photography walk around the Loop in Chicago.   Reflections in the glass are impossible to avoid, or at least I have not yet figured out how to do so. As is often the case, I like the black and white image better artistically, but feel the the color one offers additional, potentially valuable, information.  Fujis like my pocket camera permit you to set a bracket that automatically records each shot in black and white and one or more of several kinds of color, which is a handy feature to have, particularly in the street.
