Removing Large Objects

I’m not exactly sure why people insist on putting things in photos that they don’t want there. Perhaps they are too shy to ask the big guy in the Hawaiian shirt to move to the left so he’s not obscuring half the Lincoln Memorial. Maybe they spent thousands of dollars to fly to Paris and want everybody to know they went to Europe, so they refuse to come home with even one picture that doesn’t have a family member in it. I happen to have the opposite problem: family members who refuse to pose for pictures, leaving future generations to wonder why Grandma never went on vacation with the rest of the family.

That’s why it pains me to face the prospect of removing Grandma from the photo shown in Figure 12.1. It’s a beautiful vista, but there she is perched on the stone wall, obscuring a rocky crag that’s probably been there for six billion years. I’m going to feel even more pain when Grandma finds out this section is titled “Removing Large Objects,” but I think we can make it up to her in the section that follows this one, which I’ve tentatively titled, “Relocating Petite Objects to the Side of the Photo.”
