I noticed it during my first years here in Asia. But I didn't write a blog about it. I simply tried to get in touch with locals and put away the camera.
Some memories do not need to be captured on film or file.

A photojournalist went for a job interview. The interviewer asked him this question:

"Suppose you came upon a man drowning in the river not far from you."

"The key question we would like you to answer is:



what is the correct shutter speed to use?"

Hoho! Good one.

We shouldn't lose our humanity over photography!

I was saw an accident and the victim was lying on the road.

I took out my camera and started to shoot.

Many onlookers just kept quiet until someone uttered, he must be from the press. Why take photo of the poor gal on the road. What if the gal is his love one.

I stopped, deleted all the photos and tell myself. I will never take such photo again!

Tour guides are always telling me if you go beyond that point you are on your own. :bsmilie:
