CFFC: Catching People Unaware

 Catching People Unaware is a fun theme. Here is my entry.

I had no idea what they were looking at, but was glad I captured their expressions.

I couldn’t tell she was texting or sending a photo, but it looked cold and windy out there:

Photography is a lonely journey… The photographer was carrying two cameras with heavy duty lenses, a tripod, a bag, and some stuff in his pockets; and it was only 6:45 am.

This young Peruvian artist was sketching at the courtyard of the hotel. My friends M bought a beautiful painting from him.

If you want to take a photo of a woman who dressed in Peruvian traditional cloth, be sure you have a few Peruvian Sols.

Thank you for visiting!

  1. With pictures like those, do you ask them for permission to take the photo and to publish it?
    Germany [I believe its like the all over the European Union] has an absolutely stupid law out about people in pictures: even if they are just accidentally in it and not the main motif, the photographer has to obtain permission to take the picture, and a second, separate permission to publish it. Absolute nonsense, because it makes it impossible to take any picture in the street, e.g., unless the street is completely deserted. Another example how stupid that is: if you take a picture of the action in a sports stadium and have spectators in it, too, you’d have to ask any and all of them for permission even BEFORE you take the picture. That law was passed by the German Federal Assembly earlier this year. My good education doesn’t allow me to spell out what I think of them! 😀
    Have a wonderful day,


    • Need to know the law before we go to German. I agree it is impossible to avoid taking photos of people in a busy street or a tourist place. Thank you for sharing it with us, Pit.

    • Thank you, Marisa! Photography people is not my thing. When I do, I make sure I take from a distance (not a close to their face (#4 and #5 here were taken in Peru) or the person is wearing a pair of sunglasses (#1). I don’t capture the embarrassing moment, I know many the street photographers do so.
      But, in Peru, local people actually want to be photographed, that is a way they make money from the tourists.
      I appreciate your comment. 🙂 🙂
