Anyway, oh yes, one of these men asks if I'll take a picture of them. It's on a cell-phone, as it's likely to be if someone asks you to take a picture in the year 2012. I'm not really used to digital camera technology, though, so I snapped two pictures to increase the likelihood of getting it right
There was a time when I might have thought of this as being put on the spot. Depending on mood I guess I could still see it that way. Really, though, it's an opportunity for positive interaction, and that's not an imposition at all.
