Guatemalan Street Vendor

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

When I'm in a foreign country I usually ask permission when taking pictures of the locals. Some want payment, some feel their souls will be spirited away by the "black box". Either way, I don't want to offend. I was standing inside the earthquake ruined cathedral in Antigua, Guatemala when this vendor walked by. I saw her through the open door of the entry and being a long distance away decided to take the shot with my telephoto figuring she wouldn't even know. Well, one look on that face and I think I've been "had". She was gone by the time I came out but I love the shot.
