I couldn't tell you why, but I think that the photoblog RunningFromCamera.blogspot.com is a little work of genius.
The rules are simple: I put the self-timer on 2 seconds, push the button and try to get as far from the camera as I can.
They're just pictures of different places. But where the usual tourist “standing in the place looking at the camera” pose would be sterile, the running figure just brings the picture to life. And something I can't name adds up when you look at a lot of them.

I thought these were wonderfully artistic and I never had the feeling he was "running away" but more running "to" something.

Thank you for sharing this unique camera art!
