it was taken on the van. I didn't purchase it from him otherwise i have to buy the beads from every other kid selling. I offered him a lollipop instead other kids $1USD for those magnets which i got..

i do not give them things just to ask him to pose. all taking at the moment. in fact 2 of the shots were taken manual focus.

I wonder did you have enough time to compose the pictures properly... some of them seem 'off-center'. I realise you may have been taking them 'on the fly' and all. ;)

Don't feel guilty - simply sharing these photos will inspire others to give in whatever way they can!

yeah almost all taken on the fly. i could have crop them for better composition i guess but would have lost certain details if crop to aspect ratio so left it as it was.. one was actually from inside the moving van and most of the photos i was using a 105mm manual focus prime and a 12-24mm so yeah some limitation but not an excuse!
