Looking at this now, I am embarrassed at how intrusive this must have been…

I’m not good at shots including people for just that reason. Yet this scene is brought to life by the woman’s presence.
Yes, I like to think it is 😊
Haha she is looking rather puzzled as to why you are taking photos of her washing
I do like this one. Human interest.
She’s not looking best pleased. And I am sure Andrew must be dismayed at the way she has hung that washing out.
She wasn’t pleased
She seems to be deciding whether to be annoyed or just puzzled. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
I think she looks puzzled but not annoyed. If she found you too intrusive she would have hidden behind the cloth she is holding, so I reckon you shouldn’t feel too guilty. Or maybe I’m just trying to assuage my own guilt, as I would have taken the shot too!!
You’re just trying to assuage your own guilt!!😊
Oh dear, you’re probably right 😂
That was cheeky of me
I like how you captured her expression. Great image!
Thanks, Amy….not very kind of me
Oh my, she’s really giving you the look. 😯
Indeed she was….and rightly so
Yep, I think annoyed too. Wouldn’t you be? It’s a dilemma we’re all faced with at some time. I have been known to lurk behind bushes and trees to capture that special shot with a person in it when I know it’s wrong of me. The days of candid photographing are long gone, I fear. Sometimes it’s better to pay something for the privilege of taking the picture but then you get the subject smiling fit to burst in the photo and spoiling the whole effect! No easy answers.
We need to respect people
I wonder too what she is thinking… to know that you are being photographed has to be strange… but I do love that it’s not just laundry in the picture.
It’s too tempting not to take the human interest when you can!
This is the mental problem I face about taking shots of people’s doors. Will they think I’m casing the joint for a robbery? And it gets worse if I’m taking photos with people who will know or might just think I’m taking photos of them. But as mentioned above, it adds a dimension to the photo.
I tend not to take them these days for exactly this reason.
Depends on the moment, I think
“You think this is worth the click? Wait till you hear me sing!” 😀
Terrific capture, Sue. I love laundry shots and catching her working makes it even better. 🙂
Thanks, Jane! Me in Paparazzi mode?
Caught out, Sue. Just not cunning enough 🙂
It’s really tricky territory…I guess there are some situations where a conversation could precede this kind of photo, but then there might not be a language in common and the photographer might not feel comfortable enough. I admire people who can pull it off without making anyone feel intruded upon. Sigh.
