i was scared to take this, i think i only even ended up taking it to see if i could over come that fear, the picture idea was no longer even the point. i knew from the scene all around it someone would have to speak to me, i had no idea what way it would go.

so right after i took it the woman who i assume owned it asked me for $5. i think she was joking. i laughed and kept walking as they laughed. it seems just because i take a picture, someone wants something from me more and more often, the right to not allow pictures in an obvious public space, money, a permit, to agitatedly see what i took just cause they were nearby, even tho i never pointed my camera their way, always seem to have to answer to someone, just because i use my camera in a way almost no one it seems can relate to…
