It’s really awkward to ask a stranger if you could take a picture of him, unless he’s a celebrity.
Also, locals are almost always shy and tend to get conscious. Much more, I wouldn’t know what to say if someone I ask to photograph would ask me back with a “why.”
But then you can always use the power of your camera’s zoom and click on the shutter button as soon as they look your way. (He looks like Raymond Nabos, one of the young peeps I know.)
Babies, however, like to be photographed!
And little girls are mostly shy but will actually pose for you.
Photos were shot in Pagbilao, during my recent trip to Kwebang Lampas.
