I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.

Using people as medium to portray a larger image is nothing new. In the latter part of the 1900s, photographers Arthur S. Mole and John D. Thomas took photographs of meaningful symbols and insignia made up of meticulously arranged military personnel. It was their contribution to the war effort during the first world war. Sometimes, it is to increase awareness about something like what the three thousand Korean students did at a ski resort in Pyeong Chang, South Korea. They formed a human drop of blood to celebrate World Donor Day. Photographers likeĀ  Craig Allan and Spencer Tunick on the other hand, like to make human murals on a grand scale.
