I live in New York City, in the Village, so I guess I should have it easy. But, … I don’t. It’s really hard for the opposite reason I think: 25 different people are walking by, and you feel like they ALL see you taking the picture, and I feel like at least one of them is going to alert the subject to my invasion of their privacy…

Sometimes I just take someone’s pic and then look past them, as if I wasn’t looking at them anyways. In NYC, there’s always something better around the next corner. Is that cold!?

All of that said, however, I’ve never been berated or even questioned. So what am I worried about? I think it depends on the person, i.e. I would be freaked out anywhere.

by the way, nice blog! I found you on flickr hand-held large format group…
