Hi Ted!

Exactly, I full agree, you have described it much better than me!!!

Actually with the only subjects I really act carefully and many times I?m 
not comfortable is when I try to shoot a child, it is really a shame because 
I loved photography of children? As you say Ted, the PLANET is covered with 
guilty people and should be in jail?!
