Taking Photos of our daughter.
The photo above are woman who were real nice; they asked us then the asked our daughter. They also played with her in the sand for a little bit, because she asked them too. Best of all they said thank you not just to us, but to her too.
Don't think I say "Yes" to everyone who asks- I don't. Sometime I ignore people and step in the way of their camera, so they can't get a photo of her. What is difficult is we are a gust in another person's country, so I don't want to offend anyone; when in their eyes they are being perfectly innocent. But not everyone is a nice person, so how am I supposed to act or behave when someone wants to take photos of our daughter?
Our family is used to it and so is our daughter. We say “no”, sometimes we say “yes”. I have at time said “please don’t take photos of our daughter”. I have picked her up and left the area, but that angers her.
This is a no win situation for me really, maybe I need to start charging to help her college fund!
You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it. ~Author Unknown
