(This is part 2 of this story.) While I was photographing my page o' faves, these two guys came out of the building for a smoke. "What are you doing?" one of them asked. "I'm taking pictures of pictures," I said. "You're not vandalizing the building or anything, are you?" he said. 'Oh, no, of course not," I said--truthfully, because I was beautifying it, right? "Are those pictures any good?" he asked. "Yes, come over and see," I said. So the dudes come over and of course I rope them into letting me photograph them ... the one on the left had to put his goggles on first.

I'm going to go vandalize, er, I mean beautify, stuff more often.
