Photographer: Vahid Jahed, from Minden, Nevada.
Getting the Shot: The photo was taken at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco in 2006. I wanted to take some night photos there. A few swans, accustomed to being fed, approached me and one actually pecked at my camera as it was sitting at the water's edge.
The Details: I used long exposure to capture the background and the built-in flash to capture the swan.
We like the way that Vahid managed to make a make a traditional landmark shot unique. Think your own picture is good enough for Global Eye? Add your photos to our Flickr pool.
