Category Archives: Should I Have Taken The Shot

And one more from FDR

Actually, this is a crop of one of the others. In part of the Memorial, there is a line of men. Probably a food kitchen line but could be a jobs line. I guess that the line is very popular for folks to stand in and have their pictures taken. I watched these young ladies […]

It’s pretty but I liked the original better.

Photographer At Work

I was walking around the Newport News City Center lake at sunrise. Surprisingly, several photographers were out and about. One was doing a family shoot, a reunion, I think. Except that none of the family had shown up yet. I talked with him for a bit, he was concerned that by the time the family […]

Thanks for some inspiration today Lee! I’m working on my first blog site now!


Striking A Pose and the band “Entropy” at the Mahe Restaurant

One evening in Dana Point we went to a very popular restaurant, Mahe, that was across the street from the main tourist places on the water. We were hoping for good food and we were in luck–the food was great and the service was good, too. The place was jumping with music, conversation, people just […]

Nice set of “sticks”, as Donny would say! Not the drummer…..the pretty young lady. The band didn’t ask you to sit in? They must be unaware of your fame with the guitar!! 😉

Peachy at Farmer’s Market

Kelsey and I were back at the Market after a several month absence. It was hot–at 8:00 the temperature was already 90. Kelsey went to the Ashton Farms stand where this young lady was cutting peaches for folks to sample. While Kelsey tried the different types, I took pictures. I loved the bright red hair, […]

[…] to the Farmers’ Market again; Kelsey and I went to the Ashton Farms stand again (picture of Ada Ashton on July 25). Their peaches are awesome. They also have other fruit but I can’t seem to tear myself away […]

Of course you should have taken the shot!! I LOVE seeing your pictures! You have a real knack for finding pretty young girls, I see. Thanks for the explanation about the privacy thing. Now I don’t have to wonder about it! Do we suspect that this is an Irish lass? Red hair, freckles, etc. Sure looks Irish! Maybe she can give Kyle some more dancing lessons!! 🙂 Keep up the postings! I’ll be back soon. Love ya!!

Ready, Set, Pose….

So…we were at SeaWorld. The family was in line for a ride that I wasn’t interested in riding, so I was wandering about. I was taking shots across a waterway of a man with a pack of dogs when just feet away from me, a young woman began posing for another young woman and then […]

3 people….. every once in awhile. 🙂

If people are out and about, they have no reasonable expectation of privacy and so you don’t need their permission to take and display their photos. Generally speaking, you can’t sell their likeness without their permission. Sometimes I ask, most times I don’t. In this shot, I did not ask, in the one above at the Farmer’s Market, I did.

If someone sees their photos on my sites and asks that it be taken down, I would honor their request. But no one ever has. Probably because there are only two people on the planet that visit the site! Thanks for being one of them.

Very pretty girl! Like you, I’m fond of the beat up old tree. Question? If you post pix of people on this site, do you have to ask their permission? Just wondering. And should you have taken the shot? Who in the world could stop you????? Big Smile!
