sketcher

I have a lot of love for this shot. I've always wanted one like this :)
I didn't think the local art gallery would allow me to take photos, and I was right. I kept my big gun in my bag, but took a few sneaky iphone shots.

This is my daughter Tori (right), sketching the painting of the little girl for her grade 12 art summative. She brought her bestie, k, along for support.
I knew that they would be watching me via security cameras, just because I had my bag with me, so I was very sly with my phone. K, however, got caught and was asked rather sternly to delete the photos from her phone.
Upon hearing this, I emailed my shots to me, then deleted.
Good job!

January 23rd, 2012  
sneaky sneaky! Cool shot too, totally worth it :)
January 23rd, 2012  
Great shot, and nice job on the sneaking! I really need to practice taking photos with my phone without looking like I'm taking photos!
January 23rd, 2012  
Sneaky indeed! Love that they are shadows amongst the paintings. Very cool. Fav cuz my niece is in it and because you are such a badass!
January 23rd, 2012  
Beautiful photo. Seems like the gallery would want you to make them famous all over the world :)
January 23rd, 2012  
Very nice. Love the subject and silouette effect. Glad you were able to save this wonderful shot
January 23rd, 2012  
Great story and love the shot!
January 23rd, 2012  
You're bad. I would never think of breaking any kind of rules. j/k (of course). This shot was worth it. Very cool and a brave fav for you!
January 23rd, 2012  
oooh! sneaky! and very nice shot...
January 23rd, 2012  
Breakin the law breakin the law.... it was well worth it though. This is a beautiful, and timeless scene.
January 23rd, 2012  
i love this shot also. you'd think they would allow iPhone shots without flash. well worth it!
January 23rd, 2012  
It's a catch 22, it seems as though people *should* be able to take photos like this...but on the other hand, I can appreciate why they don't. Fabulous capture!
January 23rd, 2012  
@shutterbugger Hahahaha anytime lol. I love this shot so of course! :D
January 23rd, 2012  
that's some awesome interior I'd say... haha well I love the way the picture's are not presented alone... cool shot!
January 23rd, 2012  
love the vibrancy of the pictures combined with the shadows. that story's so funny - i've got an image of you skulking in doorways and cupboards looking highly suspicious.
January 23rd, 2012  
great shot, faved. Love the sneakiness too :)
January 23rd, 2012  
I love it! very sneaky :)
January 23rd, 2012  
Wow you'd make a good criminal! Great shot do it was worth it
January 23rd, 2012  
Sneaky sneaky, great picture one to cherish for sure!
January 23rd, 2012  
Your such a rebel! Worth every bit! This is amazing!
January 23rd, 2012

i go Faved
January 23rd, 2012  
Great pov and shot
January 23rd, 2012  
Nice illegal shot. So you can sketch the work but not photograph?
January 23rd, 2012  
Brilliant shot! Can't believe you managed that with your phone! It's a fav for me!
January 23rd, 2012  
stunning shot, worth the sneaking! :)
January 23rd, 2012  
Really cool capture
January 23rd, 2012  
007 job, I like - Agent J shall be my referral to you as from now on ;). This actually looks like a painting in itself, beautiful shot!! Another fav!
January 23rd, 2012  
Love the lighting!
January 23rd, 2012  
Nice composition
January 23rd, 2012  
Wonderful capture of your daughter & friend but don't you feel so guilty when you get caught taking an illegal photo !! Worth it though to get this & the POV is fantastic & as @phil_howcroft would say ''great contre-jour !!
January 23rd, 2012  
@happypat ahhh, but I didn't get caught!! I waiting for the security guard to say something to me on the way out, even had a nice conversation with her...but she obviously didn't see me :)
January 23rd, 2012  
@adeakinyede Agent J...I like it :)
I thought it looked kind of painterly too. Iphone (old one, no flash) was pretty grainy due to low light. It might have come from contrast and noise reduction in lightroom. I like it
January 23rd, 2012  
Awesome shot Jenn!! Love the composition.
January 23rd, 2012  
Art nazis! Here you're allowed, I'm sure of it, I always stand in the middle of art galleries snapping, and sometimes they ask me to sign the book to say I took photos but I've never been asked to delete nothing. I'd do some flying kicks if they did. Cooool photo too Love the contrast between the dark figures and the bright art.
January 23rd, 2012  
This is wonderful. Great composition and great feel to the shot.
January 23rd, 2012  
great shot, love the composition and the silhouettes - shame you had to resort to subterfuge to get it
January 23rd, 2012  
I can't go into a gallery without thinking of Hogwarts and imagining them all moving around and doing their thing. I love the processing on this, esp the wooden floor and of course, it being a sneaky shot it's a bit of a prize item in itself.
January 23rd, 2012  
i love these solid black figures - great imagery; and aren't you the clever spy emailing your sneaky shots :)
January 24th, 2012  
Really love this shot...and I love it more how you outsmarted the gallery people. Fav.
January 24th, 2012  
nice photo
January 24th, 2012  
Tee hee, love the sneaky shot!!!
January 24th, 2012  
This is just epic. Love all the picture frames and the reflective floor and the mysterious observers. A fav :)
January 25th, 2012  
And this was taken with your iPhone??? Now I'm even more impressed!!
January 25th, 2012  
great shot!
January 27th, 2012  
It's silly that you cannot take a picture. I'm glad that you did.
