I am tired, but if I may...
I will post a highlighted picture above.
1. The object with orange dots belong to the cameraman.
2. He set his gear down, took out his camera, stepped bsck, said nothing.
He prepared to take a non-chalant picture of his friends. The man on the right
noticed, and told the other, larger set individual. That man turned, and being
a friend, he smiled. That man, with sunglasses, owns the objects with pink dots.
3. There are three men with large green dots. They all have their eyes
very nearly in a 45 degree angle to the object. While human vision is not
perfectly 45 degrees, the eyes are always in motion. That gives us
peripheral vision. Each, or anyone of them may have had ample time to
notice something that stood out directly ahead. No one seems to notice.
4. Aside from the distracted individual, on the right, all were presented with
an opportunity to alert the others. They are young, none appear to wear
corrective eyewear. They are in prime driving condition, top of form,
risking everyday on racing appearing mototcycles.
5. What was the photo for? There is no central theme.Only a backdrop,
of the least likely types of individuals to let something go unnoticed.
Those are just my immediate impressions. As to the object, it is another
curious shape, that tells little. Yes, it has degrees of color transition.
The bottom appears bright, the top has a somewhat distinct shape,
a tapering dome. The middle is neutral and dark. That time of day, there is
traffic at every street. There is a vehicle,at the stop sign. They made no
apparent notice.I would have thought they would see it first,
before the stop sign, and come to a sudden halt, but they are proceeding,
apparently without concern. Did they report the sighting?
What are the chances, these events conveniently occured in the same
split second? The man walks and turns his camera to the direction,
and presses the shutter button.
The object materializes before any could notice.
The car was also caught up in a simultaneous event scheme.
It is just how my mind thinks. I make no judgement, only observe the obvious.
