fly on the wall theme

"Sometimes as a photographer you control every detail of an image, and sometimes you make yourself as invisible as possible so that events can unfold naturally in front of your lens.

For this photo challenge, photograph a scene as if you were a fly on the wall. This means your subjects should forget your presence so that you have no influence over what happens in front of the camera."

I really feel uncomfortable shooting people (with a camera, of course) I could have taken their photo while walking towards me, but I let them walk on by and took this shot.

    I agree with the above...Great entry ...I too feel more comfortable shooting candids of people and that also applies for myself..I stiffen up when I know someone is taking my picture but oddly it doesn't bother me to do my own self portraits when just the camera is my audience...

    I love the lines here, LG! The composition is perfect and that center line carries the eye all the way through! Keep on carrying that camera, LG! I had a barber shop owner recently tell me I couldn't photograph the exterior of her shop!!!! Some people are just not happy...Just remember this (Something Judy sent me) "In order to get something we've never had, we have to do something we have never done"

    I like the uncrowded, but not lonely ambience of this. Everything is neat and orderly. Beautiful work, Litz! I don't like photographing strangers either...I feel as if I am invading their privacy.
