Photographer's Note

I went to Adelaide Railway Station to take some pictures of the architecture, but, waiting at the entrance. I saw this lovely woman and I stole a shot or two of her. There have been some debates in the forum, in the past, about this type of photography. That is, taking pictures of people in public places without them knowing.Some people think that anyone in a public place is fair game, other feel that it is an invasion of their privacy and that one should ask first. The problem, for me, is that when asked, people tend to pose for the camera, showing the side that they want to show, and the spontaneous and natural look is lost.This lady had no idea that she was being photographed and she , to me, looks relaxed and wonderful, caught in an unselfconscious moment. I wish I could say that she was typical of the people of the lovely city of Adelaide, but human beings as lovely as this are rarely typical. She is a good example , however, of that fresh, healthy, outdoor look, typical of many who live in South Australia. But, was it right to take her picture...?
