A little joy for the young

Photo Information
I'm always uncertain with this type of photo as i did not ask permission and i certainly will not put up on social media or such and also, not that its great or anything, its just social commentary for myself and where people find themselves in the current situation.
i have left it in colour and not cropped in closer.
Any thoughts or criticisms are welcomed

An everyday Mood.....we pass and go on.....without stopping...or going into a Deep or closer sight. You did your job and picture too.

You took the shot as it was Flan and being a Street Photograph, i personally wouldn"t crop it but i imagine some others would. At the end of the day, it"s your picture to show it as you please. I prefer this type of shot to a one thats got the permission of the subject and that they would probably stop what they are doing and just smile at the camera. Repeating myself..You took the shot as it was Flan...nice one..tommyt

Thank you TommyT, i used to love doing street when young and from here on in i will just shoot and not comment, to let the photo speak for itself as such

What's the difference between using a mobile phone to film and photograph people and us using a 'proper' camera? The use of mobiles is commonplace and frequently oversteps the marks of privacy and decency while social commentary like this lovely shot is likely to provoke angry words. In fact, the guy using the mobile is most likely the one who will get uppity at the photographer!

well your defiantly correct about mobile phone video users, in that they just wonder around taping everything
I have kinda gotten used to it even though i would rather not Star in their production

It's sometimes nice to leave a photo in its original form, as you've discovered here! Nice!
