I want one 🙂
I love taking store windows – especially when I can get some outdoor images in there. One day I’m going to walk and snap before the stores and restaurants open. I don’t have the nerve to photograph people inside these places from the sidewalk. Some might get upset. There were a lot of people on the sidewalks today. I always waited until the nears ones passed by before taking the shot.
You know in the open, you can photograph anyone. In a shop or in someone’s house, you have to ask permission. I can’t use any of my sister’s animals as she has withdrawn permission for me to use any photos of them 😦
Although I have used photos of people, I have then asked them if I can, and on the whole they say yes. I tell them I am doing a project of taking a photo for every day of the year
Maybe one day I’ll work up the nerve. This afternoon on the bus, there was an old man with his dog. The old man was sitting directly in front of me and his (small) dog was seated behind him on a single seat. An elderly woman asked him if the dog had paid a fare. I said, “By the looks of it, this dog is a senior too, so he has rights.” We all laughed. I told them about my grandfather and his dog. This man reminded me of him. I was dying to ask if I could take a pic, but I just couldn’t do it. I don’t think he would have liked it. By the looks of him he may not have had a computer and wouldn’t have wanted to be on a blog. Perhaps he didn’t even know what the word, “blog” meant. I just enjoyed the conversation instead. He said that the dog pulls the sheets off his face every morning when he is in bed. 🙂
Awww that is so sweet. 🙂
How cool is that!!!
I had fun with those.
