Excellent! Glad you did not delete it. Some people have no notion of art in the making!!! :)
Thanks very much Ainsley! :)

what did you say to make her back off?i think respecting the private sphere is always in contradiction with street photography.marvellous photo though. i am quite certain she’d like it after all.
she was one of the stuff, maybe that’s why she didn’t want to be photographed :)…but she didn’t insist when i said I, in fact, didn’t want her on the picture but the person on the left, who happened to be my brother hehe..she was ok then :)Usually people don’t have a problem if they catch me photographing them, at least I didn’t have a lot such experiences…when i see someone is in doubt i just show them a picture and they are usually happy with it :)
I have a constant arguement with myself about the subject’s feelings when I take street photos. 80% of my captures never appear on the internet because I felt I have intruded on their privacy… but at the same time they are out there, in the world, and we can see them, they are part of life, they move through it and so do we… I will never resolve it. Great photo Mojca.
privacy is a strange animal… specially in London where more cameras are pointed at people then in all of China :) go figure…I love the photo though :)!
This is such a good photo…love this:-)
London Underground so well captured! And a typical reaction from a tube worker. Glad you didn’t delete it! :)
I think the eye contact accounts for much of the strength of the image. Glad you didn’t delete or remove her.
