I don’t typically take shots like this, because they are intrusive and provocative without much social merit, but occasionally something will move me to snap the picture. Generally, it’s if the person’s identity is shielded, but not always. More often, it’s due to a desire to ensure we never forget this part of society exists, and to remind us what the camera is for.
