Turning a Blind Eye

    Newer Older

    I must have walked 10 miles in Jogjakarta that day. There were so many things to see... interesting people, clothes, etc etc. I saw this guy a few times, and I decided to take a shot on the third time. He regarded me with a cool one-eyed stare and didn't give much reaction one way or the other. I'm pretty good at getting the vibe if someone does not want their photo taken... I got no vibe from him. Actually, I got no vibe at all.

      To me, he looks a little suspicious of your camera. :)

      Trey... you've already proven yourself to be somewhat of a tech geek in the past. Did this guy not emit any vibe at all or were your Betazoid powers just on the low down?? ( from all of the walking around... ) lol!

      Wonderful portrait. I loved reading your commentary. I'm really trying to get braver taking photos of people. Not so good at it right now (too shy!!). Have a great weekend!

      If you can get it like this, it's better than a posed smile!

      Maybe he's used to being stared at and the neutral expression is how he deals with it :-)
