It was a normal trekking day to one of the nearby hills. Far away, i see this inoccent little boy and i tell him "Come here little boy, i will take your picture".
And he gives me this pose.
Looks like this little boy has got swag that i will never have.

Thank you so much. I am just back from my travels. Sorry that i couldn't reply earlier.
I got many responses to my post after your entry. I reached 500 followers as well.
You are great!

·
·

Good to hear!
Will you have lots of photos from your travels to post?

·
·
·

Yeah i have some. I saw an australian woman and a man on the trek to langtang valley here and all i was remembering was you. LOL.

A stranger man asking a child to photograph him... And you wonder why this look. 😂
However, a great portrait.

·

he looks like some gang member to me after seeing the photo. Maybe i am wrong haha.

·
·

This would be a different story. It means you were lucky, you could have got bullied by vicious kids armed with lollipops. 😂

It is a great portrait! He is a cute kid, and I hope he was being properly suspicious of a stranger.

·

Yes he was. He might have been suspicious of me all the time.
But the way the picture came out, i felt i should be the one to be afraid of him.

·
·

He has an attitude, that's for sure!

Actually he was beside his father and i showed him his child's picture and he was happy.
:(

·
·

ahahahahaha

Congratulations, @cave-man. Today's #monomad first place is yours. Thank You for participating!

·

Thank you so much. I am honored.

He is a child rightly skeptical of a stranger taking his photo – just as mama would have taught him. 😎 Great capture and terrific portrait.

·

I am feeling that i got him totally wrong(i kind of felt he was cool) but he might have been skeptical of me that whole time. Haha

·
·

Well, no offense, but I would hope he has been taught to be skeptical of strangers – especially strangers who want to photograph him. I taught my son to be skeptical of strangers and to never agree to any adult request without permission from me or his dad, or the adult/adults in whose care we’ve trusted him. Sadly, it is a bad old world, after all.

I love those deeply real pictures too, but make it a personal policy to never photograph kids who are not accompanied by their parents, and to ask those parents if it’s okay to get a picture of their kids. I know photographers who were not as circumspect and found themselves dealing with suspicious and/or irate parents. These days, people are really touchy about it.

Children here love having their photo taken. Well, i love playing with kids.
But i will surely consider what you said the next time. Thank you for the wise words.

Great photo, @cave-man! Portrait photography is a whole different level. I'm not there quite yet.

PS: I've found your post because @minismallholding suggested it in his entry for The Pay It Forward Contest

·

Your posts say otherwise my friend.
Thank you.

I'm going to tell the boy's father to go hunt you for exploiting his son! 😂

Kidding aside and no offense meant, maybe you need to reconsider very identifiable persons especially children stranger to you before posting their photo on the internet without their parents' permission.

You captured a great photo there, though. Very good blurring of the background. I guess the boy ducked to the side thus he is not at the center.

I came across your article through @minismallholding who featured it on his post as an entry to the Pay It Forward Curation Contest. The contest is open to everyone so you are welcome to join.

·

Luckily he was beside his father and he allowed me to take the photo.
Now that i know how serious this issue is, i won't forget to ask for permission every other time.

·
·

Good going... :)

Great portrait. I really like his expression, though I agree with the others that the situation probably felt strange and uncomfortable for him and he's letting you know!
I've found you from @minismallholding's pay it forward curation contest entry. Keep up the great work.

·

I got a cool vibe from his shot but seems like i was wrong. Haha.
Thank you.

Hi there I found your post because you were featured in this week's @pifc curation contest by @minismallholding

·

thank you.
Drop by sometimes.

Dropping by and supporting your post @cave-man, due to the entry of it, by @minismallholding, into our Pay It Forward Community's weekly curation contest. As part of the @pifc community, we would encourage you to check into it.

With very limited time, I wanted to be sure and take the first step in showing support, prior to the expiration of Steem’s 7-day limit for payouts. As time allows, I will try to get back to provide you more personalized input into what you have written.

Thank you for your effort here to add value to our Steem blockchain!

·

Thank you.
I will always be happy if you visit my posts and love personalized input. I am always looking for the ways to improve.

Up before 🌄 (here) and getting back to your post @cave-man. I think you captured a very interesting "portrait of a boy," but had a similar thought as I see others have expressed here, so I won't repeat them. Looks like you have taken them constructively.

The one other thing I might mention to you, for future reference. A number of contests, such as ours in our Pay-It-Forward Community, have a minimum number of words required. While this post was selected, normally it would not have been enough words - 200 words, to be exact.

I know for me, seeing a photo is looking at something "through the eyes" of another person. It is always helpful for the text of the post to take the reader through a little background, what the picture is about, what it meant to you, etc.

Please don't take this as anything more than input to consider for next time. Perhaps it will be helpful. Perhaps not. We are free "in here," on our decentralized blockchain, to do whatever in our free will we deem to be in our best interest.

Until we "meet" again, all the best to you and yours @cave-man!

I agree with you.
I occasionally write a long post if a photo tells some interesting back story. But for most of the time, i am experimenting with my photographs and i love to get input from people and if they are getting what i am trying to show with my photos.
Now that i know it, i will make a habit of writing long posts frequently.
Thank you.

One great aspect of Steem @cave-man is the freedom to do what you deem best and with which you are most comfortable. Sometimes, "stretching" ourselves a bit helps us to grow.

I can only speak for myself and let you know that reading the text brings the picture "to life," for me, through the eyes of another person. Fascinating world "in here," as you read about what others think and feel. You learn things you might otherwise never know!👍😊
