More Pics of the Hood!

I really want to start candid shots of the locals - but I feel really weird about it! I'm afraid that people wouldn't like it! I saw the best shot this morning on my way to the gym: a bunch of old men playing mah johng in the park. They were so adorable. I think elderly Asian people are the cutest. I don't know what it is about them. Does anyone out there have an hints on how to be inconspicuous when taking candids?
Sujoy took these. The indoor shots were taken at the Shih Dong Market - this huge indoor market across the way from us. There's alot of mystery foods there! I'll have to take some pictures of the unusual foods there. Some of it will gross vegetarians out though!

Hi thanks for your comment. I do rty to entertain -although Bex will say i'm too naughty sometimes. Love the pics of "the hood" looks pretty. And you have two places where you live! No wonder you can afford Pete pics at $500 a time. See you later

Just a little musical gift.

As for stranger photos (which I love):
Actually ask (if they speak english!) I've done this several times, and people are actually pretty cool about it.


get a long angle lens and stand further away. Pretend to focus on something else and then nail them! I'm working on a series of tourist shots in LA doing just that (bad Laura!)
