nb: this is my editing wall. some photos will come up and down at the whim of the egotistical photographer.

I love how the crane safety guy is also taking a photo. Was tempted to sneak up to him and get a shot but I was already late :(

Couldn’t decide if the monitor ruined or helped this photo by blocking out one of her legs. Ended up liking it because the falloff of the light looks like it’s part of Lauren’s leg.
