Usually on Monday I participate in Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge.  But Sally will be not only cyber-free but visiting relatives this week, so there’s no challenge.  Instead, I thought I’d share a photo I took earlier this year along Naperville’s Riverwalk, a lovely length of pavement that winds through the downtown.  I took my camera and sat on a bench, waiting to see who or what came by.  This meeting brought a smile to my face.  The little boy wanted to pet the dog but as you can see, he was a bit cautious.

Do you prefer color or black and white?

I rarely shoot photos of people for a variety of reasons.  First, I remember “back in the day” when we photographers were told that if we wanted to use a photo of a person, they’d need to sign a permission slip.  Maybe that was only if the photo was to be published a/o sold, but that stuck with me.  Second, I feel intrusive pointing a camera at someone.  Last, but not least, many of the places I’m taking photos are out in nature, not around people.  But…
