Not Exactly Delighted

Wherever I go, I try to remember my camera.

I am fortunate.
Due to a steady flow of tourists, the local population are pretty inured to photographers capturing their images.

Tact and sensitivity are especially required, however, when taking pictures of women:
A male stranger attempting to photograph a woman can cause offence. 

By respecting my neighbour’s customs and dignity, I have mostly avoided misunderstandings.

But, 
just occasionally, 
I get it decidedly wrong

And photograph a less than ecstatic subject..
