This second example of following involves the photographer (me) following two situations. The scene takes place in a restaurant. The couple to the left of me is arguing, unaware that their picture is being taken by the boy who is seemingly just playing with his phone. The second pictures is a photo of the hostess, who is staring at the arguing couple, clearly intrigued by their heated discussion. There are two types of following going on. The photo of the couple describes my own following through eaves-dropping, while the photo of the hostess describes my following of a follower, bringing to light the notion that as observers, we may ourselves be observed. The actions of a follower can also be followed.
