Here are a few more shots from Galle Railway Station in Sri Lanka a few weeks ago as the 10.55 to Colombo prepared to depart and I made the most of my 10 rupee platform ticket

They are all brilliant. i love them. People in Asia are most of the time grateful that you take a pic, not the same in our countries.

Thanks a lot Jay :-) I tend to just take my shot, smile a lot and engage with people afterwards if it feels like the right thing to do :-) to be fair these guys were really nice when I said thank you after taking the shot, so I didnt get any hassle (this time) lol

Yeah, it's quite a dance to make a subject feel at ease.......Smiles and lightheartedness are always helpful. I like to just have the camera up to my eye and pan around quite a bit before clicking the shutter. That way they are not really sure what you're trying to capture. Subjects that look menacing and people who turn away when they see me pan around, I avoid, as well. Asking permission is polite, but then the subjects tend to pose, which defeats the purpose of catching a slice of truly candid life.....

I do the same as you do. And if they noticed, then I smile, or say thank you or as the last one I told the man in Portugal that it was so nice his jacket from the same color as the blue of the house (what was true !)

I guess every situation is different, so we have to be sensitive to everyone's feelings. I don't want anyone to feel violated or uneasy....
