    I put it on Facebook and captioned it as "a photographer and (the bottom end of) his tripod and, possibly a Sirui or Gitzo and, response wise, it runs the gamut of MJ (Michael Jackson) to an Al Capone type thug :eek: ..... any thoughts from the discerning minds here?

    I think you see what fits in with your interests and context. So most people on this forum (including me) will see it as someone wrestling with a tripod/monopod.

    Probably...

    Ditto, Steve, that's exactly what I saw .... of course, I saw his taking pics, as well ;)

    It does look vaguely telescopic and the only thing I own that looks a bit like that is a monopod held upside down. He looks very confused as what to do with it.

    I play a lot of first person shooters, that's clearly someone in Fallout 3 or Fallout 4 wielding a .50 cal sniper rifle.

    It reminded me of that American keep fit instructer that we used to see so many times on utube and in the movies......if it was not for the mono pod or what ever it is it would have made a very nice silhouette picture. The out of focus backdrop has been handled quite well. Yes I agree with all the comments on here. But of course we all see pictures differently, if we did not it would be a boring old world would it not.....

    I did recognize it as someone with a tripod but it makes me think of Robert Johnston.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    It is someone on the verge of bursting a blood vessel trying to erect a Benbo Trekker.

    It was a tripod, Pete, and I only know that because I saw him using it ;) and, I agree, that he does look a tad confusion on the restructuring of it :D

    Cheers,
