Since moving to San Francisco, I've been photographing any etched messages I find on the sidewalk. I've called the series Word on the Street.
This was on Divisadero. I hadn't seen it before Sunday night, though I've walked over it before.

The thing about Zoo photographs (beyond being completely unnatural, unsporting and often sad ... if you really think about it) is that the backgrounds are often ridiculously artificial. I think, from a technique standpoint it makes sense to approach these kind of shots backwards: background first.
The other tough thing: getting model releases signed.

One of the things I'm not sure photographers fully appreciate yet about micro four thirds format cameras like the Panasonic GH1 and Panasonic GH2 is that you can essentially work with a 100% viewfinder. If you see it, that's exactly how it will appear in the final image. That makes working with edges much easier, really. If you want a crack in the street exactly at the bottom of the frame, just compose it in the viewfinder as you like.
