shutterbug

i was on the ferry on the weekend when i noticed a bloke up the back who was snapping pics of everything and everything. it was a random snapping of pics that was drawing attention of fellow passengers.

i could tell he was a fellow photo-phile. someone, like me, that compulsively takes pics of the world arround them. random stuff. a pencil on the ground. graffiti, strange looking people and the like.

i get a little self concious about it though and tend to shoot from the hip with no flash or shutter sound. i try to justify this as being able to capture the moment without making poeple concious of you taking the picture thus introducing an artificial element into the moment.
