Photo thoughts 3 -- pictures of people
I wrote Saturday about how my favorite category of photos is those showing what people do to their surroundings. But that’s not my only area of interest.
It has always seemed rude to take pictures of strangers, let along asking for trouble if somebody decides you’re a pedophile shooting kiddie porn at the playground. And it’s also borderline rude to post pictures of your friends on the internet, so I sometimes crop or blur on purpose (or sometimes not on purpose).
Now I have a 7x zoom on my new camera and suspect that people may start appearing more frequently. Here are a couple from last week.
