One of the things that makes this series of photographs especially challenging is that it's hard to shoot the subjects without being seen by the vendors. When I shoot a tour bus, for instance, it's fairly easy to do so without being seen by the driver, although there have been some amusing and embarrassing exceptions.
This morning, after shooting the above, the vendor came RUNNING after me. "What were you doing?" he asked, obviously agitated. "Oh, I was just photographing the painting on the side of your cart," I replied. "WHY?" he practically shouted. "I think it's beautiful," I shrugged. And the look! The look he gave me! He clearly didn't believe me (some of you may not either), and scowled relentlessly at me as I traipsed away, thrilled at my latest conquest.
It was like I was Osama bin Peteykins or something.
