Q: double Exposure portrait

A: Do you know?

We had walked most of the way to the top of the Líndos Acropolis on the island of Rhodes. Everyone but my wife was looking at the final series of steps that needed to be taken before entering the Greek ruins. She told me to turn around, look over the edge and take a picture of the donkeys that some of the tourists had paid to ride up rather than make the walk.

I figured I'd title this "Cleaning Up" because the guy is not only hosing down what the donkeys have left, but also has been cleaning up financially from the group of tourists that just took the ride up.

JPG removed Rearview from competition because too many photographers were placing photos of someone's rear end rather than photos of something behind what is attracting everyone's attention. I did turn around, but ended up shooing rear ends anyways. Sometimes you just can't win.
