A fruitful source of candids is those people who are so engrossed in what they are doing that they don't notice you taking aim. Typical activities are eating, finding the right track on their mp3 players (they can't hear
you approach either!), chastising children/dogs/partners (ditto
) and taking photographs.

, still cracking on with my old Olympus. And if you remember my comments on glassware uploaded yesterday, it's that lens again
55mm, 1/250th sec @ f16
Sorry about the background - tried to clone it out, just made it worse. But it was there
Never did find out what the portrait looked like!
