Being heavily inspired by this work of @Richard, I went out strawling the city with my camera. I found this huge billboard in the middle of the pedestrian consumer zone, with lots of people passing by and got this shot. I don't know if I missed the focus on the girl or if my shutter speed was too slow (1/320) for her runnesque walking, but it's better to get the pic as to not get it, right? And I hope you don't mind the copy-catting.
There's a quote by Banksy I was thinking of since I've seen Richard's post which and that was also put to life in a comic over at the guys of Zen Pencils: Taking the p**s (Explicit)
“People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you. You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity. Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head. You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.” (Banksy)
Wise words from the Dog of Wisdom: If your ball is too big for your mouth, it's not yours.
