Your photos are diverse, and mainly they are taken in the city. Don't you think that you might get in trouble with people, for example police or other easily-irritating people?

Keep up the shooting
See you!

I want to know the answer to the above question too! How do you manage to take pictures of people discreetly? You must be very very fast I guess?

This photo sends me smiles! It's such a candid and funny shot. :-)

Can you share with me on how to take a good picture like yours? Anything that I should pay attention to?

Mike: I must be a lucky guy... the people in my city are either friendly or just too busy to care. Anyhow, as I have said a few times ago, not only would I stay as non-intrusive as possible, I'd simply stop photographing even when the slightest objection was expressed by the people.

Natnat's mom: glad you liked this candid.:-) I'm not self-deprecating but I really don't think I possess any special secret except some basics: first, shoot from the heart - do what you feel or should I say, only shoot when you've got a strong feeling. Second, always be prepared - capturing an interesting moment is always a matter of luck but can also be a matter of patience... Of course, I'm not saying photographic knowledge, compositional skills and processing techniques are unimportant, but these are things that can be learned to a certain extent, and the learning process will only be more enjoyable when one has the passion...

Cheers,
Hugo
