Photo Challenge: Face in the Crowd


Like many people, I hesitate to photograph people without their knowledge.  Sometimes, if the mood is right, I ask permission, but then the people invariably strike poses or give an embarrassed smile for the camera.  So, the few I have are usually street scenes or action scenes.  Some I feel I couldn’t display publicly as they could be misinterpreted, have vulnerable children in them, or are otherwise not suitable.   Below are some I hope fit the challenge and I have captioned them.

  1. I couldn’t find out what happened to them so I’ve put them up again. They may not be quite the same photographs but near enough I think. Thanks again for guiding me to this flawed post.


  2. Thank you for that comment. I’m glad you popped in because on my computer my photographs have disappeared and now I’ve got to try and find out why! I’m very grateful that you happened on it.


  3. Glad it tripped a memory. In this particular village, all the women (when we saw them) wore black shawls and the men seemed very suspicious of us. Mind you, we were in a very remote area in the mountains.


  4. Probably, dawn to dusk for some people, but as for hectic? I don’t think so. Life is taken at a very slow pace here, and any spare moment is used for sleeping. I’ve never met people like the S.E. Asians who could sleep at any time and in any place.
