I'm finally getting around to posting the versions I have of this very unusual threesome. My curiosity of them strolling along ever so mysteriously in the early morning hours gives me the impression of a previous long night of a hard social gathering and unique entertainment. He snarled at me as well Minnie, since I ignored his requests while I moved along out of his reach.

The two images of the threesome are slightly out of focus, but I thought that the images were interesting enough to post, especially the second one. The female in the center must have spotted me and was giving me a hand gesture that I have seen previously, but have no clue to it's meaning. I did make an attempt to improve as best as possible, but on a scale of 0-10, I would give it a 4.
I was wrong. I did have the group as a trio. I have an almost exact duplicate of the middle shot with the strange gesture, though of course I processed it differently and mine don't look as spooky. Here is one I took just seconds later after that shot, and when you realize what she has in her mouth is a hypodermic syringe, I'm wondering if there is some connection between the gesture and that.


Oh my !!! The more I think about the trio while viewing them only indicates to me that they are beyond a repairable state into a normal society. The hypodermic syringe is a frightening sight that I missed.

The hand gesture, I have seen before and had an idea of it's meaning, but really I was clueless. I did a search to confirm my suspicions. This is my find: Sooo not a peace sign! The innocent two fingers get naughty when you bring the tongue into play. If you hadn't already guessed, this one is suggestive of oral sex. https://thestir.cafemom.com/tweens_teen ... 4/v_sign/3

Well you’ve educated us on new more modern insults, Dave.

They were a troubled group. The brand on the belly of the Dark Lord convinced me.

Dave and I found some of our most interesting and alarming characters as the sun rose each day, and the allnighters were preparing to go inside.

This one was the most startling of my captures, and I'm still not done with him. I can visualize him in a scary scene like some Piet creates (or did before he took up his acorn project). He is interesting in color, and b&w. I only got this one keeper of him. Hope Dave got more.

Critique on this one would be appreciated, and especially suggestions about what to do with him in some creative manner.
I'm from LA and from the Punk World so nothing really shocks me, but I am curious about the pirate garb, a performer maybe? The way he holds his jacket is interesting too, as are his tattoos, but what really gets me is that he knows you're there and playing to it.

What I like about the image is its rawness, the feeling of a last-second capture and poof he's gone, it's the tension of him leaving the image that really sells it. I know we're supposed to give him space within the frame but this is as good as it gets for high-drama.

Okay, now that's I've scrolled down and seen his lady friends, I don't know quite what to say except I love NOLA! S-
