taking pictures


I was leaning against a wall with my headphones on, taking a moment to enjoy the sun, when a woman approached me. She asked whether she could take my picture. Not for a publication or a blog, but just for her "private album of Vienna pictures". I thought that was great. Secretly (or not so secretly now) this is what I'd like to do. I've always admired those who just take pictures of people. Not fashion pictures, just street scenes. But as I can't even get my friends to relax in front of the camera, I'll probably stick with houses. Apart from the one in the first picture, the one that looks like a dead monkey, they usually look completely indifferent.
