Ain’t no humans in my shots unless it’s to specifically document the idiocy of Homo sapiens. You’re welcome.

Famous tourist location... facing the wrong direction.

Famous tourist location... facing the wrong direction.

I actually find these more fascinating and informative than the original works. It’s all about context.
