There I was in Greeley Square, 32nd and 6th Avenue early today where I was practicing taking surreptitious pictures with my iPhone5s. I thought the son and dad was a decent shot – Picture 1.

Then I realized that I wasn’t the only engaged in surreptitiousness, that there was a team out there with sophisticated audio and video equipment surveilling the Square. Pictures 2 and 3: The guy wearing headphones, he’s got a two-way radio and at least one audio recorder and I saw antennas in his bag and has been walking back and forth for about 5 minutes, maybe more.

Picture 5 shows four of them wrapping up. The female, in that folded purple wrap of hers, she’s holding a long pole with wires attached to some kind of microphone.

Anyway, I thought it was interesting.
