Orange woman


You can tell that this woman selling oranges was not too happy that I was taking pictures of her. She was verbally abusing me right after this shot, but since I don't understand Korean, I was blissfully unaware of it all -- I was later told by my friend who spoke Korean that she wasn't saying very nice things about me. According to my friend, she would probably have been more accomadating if she knew I was a tourist. Haha. Fujifilm S2Pro, AF Nikkor 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 Posted by Picasa

You're lucky she didn't start throwing rotten fruit at you. :-P

Hmmph, then I'd have thrown it back at her. I think Koreans may be rude, but they don't get physical.

Did you actually ask for her permission? If not, no wonder she wasn't happy! I work as a photographic art director and obtaining permission would be advisable when taking photos of people in future ;)

nah.. sometimes asking for permission will just foil the whole thing. People, especially Asians tend to be very conscious of themselves on cam
