As you can see I’ve somewhat gotten over my reluctance to photograph people. In Germany the law is that you need to ask someone before you take their picture, and as I’m someone who doesn’t want her picture taken by strangers either, I’m all for that law, especially if the picture might end up on the internet.
The more time I spend behind the camera, though, the more intriguing I find taking people pictures. Since attending the photo workshop I’ve become slightly more unscrupulous, daring myself to just do it! , and telling myself that people will let me know if it’s not OK to take their picture.
Anyway, in these pictures the focus is more on the autumn leaves, the woman just happened to come along and I decided to take advantage.
