Back from my travels. Over the next week or so, I’ll be posting snapshots from my travels in New York and Chicago. This was a trip to catch up with friends and family and take care of NY personal business. So it was extremely fulfilling in those areas, not so productive on the photography front.

57th St and Broadway, New York

My current ethics of photography do not really include taking shots of people in the street without their consent and/or collaboration. In this case, I crouched down in front of him so he knew I was there and tourists were clearly photographing him with their phones from bad vantage points, and he was not complaining so I took it he was tacitly consenting. I will probably post a few other street shots over the coming days from this trip that contravene this personal rule of mine, where, for one reason or another, I felt taking the shot was validated in some way – we shall see…

  1. That’s a hard call, isn’t it? Taking advantage of a situation or merely taking a photo that catches your eye.
    If too personal, no need to respond, but will you be making England your home?

    1. Don’t know yet. Certainly for the next year as I finish my course; after that will depend how much I can advance my photographic career here during the year, how acclimated we become, and, perhaps, the political situation in both countries and globally.
