Say something

I was walking around looking for a smiley person picture I could take. I came across these two women. My Spanish is very limited and all I could think of to say to them was: ” di queso” and It made them laugh. Got my snap and luckily my subject was exposed and focused as I took only one shot. I’m unsure what I said, but I was hoping I said “say cheese”. Mexico. Tourist snapshot series.

    So after your travels, have you gotten over your fears of photographing strangers in the street?

      Yeah, I'm getting used to it, but the crowds of people are/were getting to me. Now I'm glad that people are traveling less due to the virus, and I'm staying put to do my part.

      Thank you very much, Sigrid! This was a fun experience, and her friend on the right was a bit resistant. My subject was a bubbly one! Thank you for your nice comment and for sharing!

    I really like street photography where the photographer has engaged with their subjects. Makes such a difference.

      Thank you Dabhand16! On this day this was my goal, and was quite please to have reached my goal. I agree it makes a difference to have this kind of interaction, and I admit it's not always what I want.
