I am always watching kids when I am out and about. Once I was almost accused of stalking because I was taking lots of photos of kids playing on the beach at Clearwater! The mom accosted me and wanted to know why I was taking photos of HER child. I explained that I take photos of MANY children and women for reference for paintings.....that I do not paint strictly from the photo, but sometimes just use postures or light effects. She was not swayed and asked me to delete her child's photo. THAT was a first! I produced my copy of photographer's rights (always kept in my camera bag), explaining that any public place is fair game for photographers, but as a COURTESY, I would delete her child's photo.
This is NOT that child....lol I took this photo at another public event...the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City. That event is coming up soon and I always load up on my people references there. :)
Btw, I am still one day behind in the "30 in 30" challenge. ;) Don't worry, I will catch up. I just had too much fun with this one!
