When out shooting on the streets there are certain ethical rules that I impose on myself. For example I will not capture a photo that will belittle someone else. I will also not photograph a child without permission from the parent or accompanying guardian.
Recently while passing a still standing bus I spotted this little girl staring out the window. I could see the parent sitting next to the girl but I could not speak to her. This left me with a problem. I lifted my camera to the parent in the bus and pointed towards the girl. This was my way of trying to get permission. The parent smiled and nodded, this was enough for me.
