    schnee – i’d like to apologize for not getting to this one much sooner. i came across it last night when i was going through the theme thread and about smacked myself on the forehead. if you’d like to expand upon the theme description please let me know.

    Methinks you worry too much. have a margarita.

    LGTI, I’m thinking about people who aren’t in “heroic” roles doing “heroic” things, even something as simple as holding open a door for someone who really needs that door opened (as opposed to holding a door b/c of good manners).

    Even if I didn’t have an entry ready I would be looking forward to this one.

    Are you sure you want to make it that broad? And by broad, I’m talking about my sister…seeing a picture of somebody hold the door for her as she heads into the local Burger King might be good manners, but I don’t think it would make a compelling shot. The heroic shot would be somebody blocking it actually. 🙂

    Agreed, I don’t want to see pictures of well-mannered people (see bolded text). I guess I would like to see photographs of “typical” heroes (firefighters, police officer, medical personnel) but I really want to see photographs of people going out of their way to help someone else out. Does that make sense?

    Occasionally, though, there is the shot of someone holding a door for someone else, where the shot contains the answer to the question “why should I care?“, i.e. why is this door holding more special (and heroic) than all other door holdings? And that shot will be damned good, and we will all want to see it!

    Of course, with my sense of timing, I will only ever stumble on that shot opportunity on a week that Farktography has the theme, “still life with rocks.”

    Yes, well said.

    I don’t have a shot like this in the archives, but I wish I did.

    I totally agree (little old lady smiling at the helpful boy scout, etc.)…I wasn’t really being serious, I was just taking a cheap shot at my sister who had worked her way under my skin earlier that day. 🙂

    Given the onslaught of posts so far… you’re in good company.

    Yeah, I came up empty too. I ended up using that nothingness as my photo. Maybe I’ll think of something on the drive home from work but if not, this will be my first contest without 3 entries since I started participating weekly. 🙁

    I really wanted to get a photo of a police/ambulance/firetruck all lit up but I didn’t have enough time to stake out said establishments (or risk terrorist charges :P). Oh well bring on next week … hopefully!
