Faced with innocence by lorrainemd Faced with innocence by lorrainemd
Riding on a boat on the Mekong Delta, in Vietnam, this boy climbed on the side of the boat and tried selling us some dragon fruit ( a yummy and colorful fruit from this region). This is taken through a window, yet he seemed to stair in my eyes without any barriers whatsoever.

just curious (I'm a newbie at taking pictures of people) when you take pictures of a person.. do you ask them if you can take a photo of them? or do you just take a photo of them randomly without asking? (btw this is very nice clean shot!)

There is not much I can say about this photo. I am just blown away at how spontaneous it was and how great it is. I would guess though that this was no luck you came across but much work and development that enabled you to take this. There is no luck. You are very good :nod:

Its slightly depressing, that kid is running around selling fruit cause he needs the money, much like some of the people around here I see selling roses or oranges just to scrounge up some cash, I look at that photo and wonder what kind of life that kid will lead
