It looks like he is a lone photographer, but not really. Because this was taken at 30 seconds, the people who were moving including other photographers, disappeared. He was the only one standing still for about thirty seconds or so.
I just found out that this photo was on Explore at Flickr for October 30. Because of that, it garnered over a thousand hits and over 40 faves.
It’s a huge panorama, about 5 feet long, 11 photos stitched together.
You can see the photo on flickr.
I have had so many photos that have been on explore since I joined flickr in 2005. You can see them here.
