San Diego Street Portraits and Candids

One of my favorite pastimes is asking people on the street if I can take their picture.  Most say yes.

  2. it’s cool that you ask, I like that. Reminds of Zack Arias. He is the same way.

  5. I am so impressed that you do that!!! I’m just too shy, awkward, scared of rejection or something but okay, maybe I’ll try it, who knows what’ll happen…? Anyway, thanks for the ‘like’ on my paintings.

  9. I would be so surprised if someone asked to take my photo. Not sure what I would do! Hopefully I would be brave enough to say yes.

  10. Like the pink femme tattoo photo and the yoga practitioner sitting down a lot. The last one brings some tranquillity over me… ;) But the pink one does as well when I think about it. It’s also a very peaceful picture…

    • Caught the pink one near some cliffs with her mom, who is easily younger than I am.

  11. Just curious…are they nice to you, even if they say no? Also, do any of them ask for your site name to check it out?

    • Most people who say no are nice about it. Occasionally someone asks for the name of the site.
