i have been out lately but it's not just a simple photo walk this time... street photography was the theme... god! i think that most of it is very stressful. it's just that i want to do some thing that could challenge me. but may be it's out of my league. yesterday i was gone out again and there was this guy that suddenly said that i should take a photograph with someone else could he doesn't like to be photograph... but the thing i all i want to photograph is the bag beside them... not them... and i told them that i don't have an intention to take their photograph but the bag. did you have the say situation as i did?

I had an incident where I was taking a picture and suddenly my wife to me don't take the picture. She had seen a girl shake her head while looking at me. I was taking a picture in a foreign country and my focus was the busy fish market and the girl was in the corner of the photo. What ever her reasons I respected it and walked away.

Not sure why that would be stressful, did they make a big deal out of it or did they understand why you wanted to take a photo of the bag only? Whose camera did you use? Maybe you could have takent rhe photo of them And then the bag too? What was the bag about, anything interesting?

tennis bag... i love the color and it's behind the tennis court so it kind of fit just right where it is... the dude doesn't like his photograph taken... but i told him at his face that his not worth to bother... i think that really give him an idea that his nothing to me...

Maybe he just didn't want your picture taken and felt comfortable about you taking the picture even if it was just the bag. I would have apologized and looked for something else to photograph if he didn't feel comfortable with any part of him in a picture then I would respect that.

My dad took a picture of Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco and right in the middle was a guy who obviously put his hand over his face so his picture couldn't be taken... Possibly he wasn't really mad (crazy) but was afraid what might happen if he happened to be recognized... ya never know what with the pixs being posted on the internet these days
