When I grow up I would like to be a street and travel photographer.
I have always had a passion for people watching and enjoy it even more with a camera.
It takes bravado and finesse.
Courtesy and respect.
It is best done without family around, especially the ones that say "mom, don't do that", "Nicki, don't take pictures of people" and the ever popular "creeper".
But this lady was totally okay with me taking her picture.
This one, well she was oblivious - she was concentrating on the rat with wings
and I wasn't nearly as close as the picture would imply.
And these people, they define the location
and honestly I don't think they even noticed me.
