More than once in the US when I have pointed my cameras at a child to get a candid photo, I’ve gotten dirty looks. For that reason, I don’t take many photos of kids when I am wandering around.
But in this case, I couldn’t resist. Plus, I was in Lisbon, Portugal, and his parents smiled when they saw me taking his photo. It’s a different culture, I guess. The location is the Jeronimos Monastery and what I like about this picture is the child’s casual stance. I also like how he is looking at me in a way that isn’t fearful or suspicious.
