Hi Jim,

Yes, she is cute and it is a nice scene, I agree that the old World has a 
different charm. 

I?ve read too the Ted?s comment, I have to say that at least my short 
experience on a week in NY in 2005 was a very pleasant photographic 
experience, and I had no problem at all shooting people, well ? many time I 
was with my cloak of invisibility?. , but seriously some pictures I took 
pointing directly my camera to the people and been clearly noticed I never 
had a problem, the people was always very kind, maybe NYC is a special 
different place for the touristic influence??

My humble advice when do you shoot people is never feel ?guilty? to have 
shot them, if your attitude was this one the people would ask himself what 
this man has do and why?? If they noticed me I smile looking for complicity 
with them, other times I do an idiot expression looking around as ?m 
photographing everything I see. Don?t have a complex if you shot a beautiful 
lady, if you do it with respect generally you will never have a problem they 
are happy to see that someone has appreciated she are beauty ?. Many times, 
after shooting I establish a conversation with the person and I keep her/his 
mail to send them the photo.

Of course, before to point my camera to someone I point it to a different 
area to allow me prepare the proper settings and later shot very fast the 
person, I usually operate in manual settings. 

I hope this helps...
