DSC_0018I was awandering through a nearby ‘city’ and saw a group of young people just chilling out and I asked If I might take some photos.  Most agreed, some (like this lady) tried to hide and others put their hoods over their heads (or rather one bloke did).  I also got lectured by a young woman, not of the group(s), and asked why I was photographing them and that I should ask their permission and also that I should explain the what and the why to them.  Which I had.  Now I am all for respecting privacy and understand that the internet is a nasty place at times but so is the real world.  I know she was trying to ensure their safety but God she was pompous.

Anyway took a few and will be posting these quite quickly as some of those pictured took the website address.

Thank you to all of you who participated.
