"Imitation is the best form of flattery"

Photographie, Malen mit Licht, Farben, Emotionen, Gefühle, Ausdruck, Mimik & Gestik, Poesie und Prosa - Bilder, Worte, Posen, Tanz, ... besser kann ich es im Moment eben auch noch nicht für mich definieren, "Kunst" eben, im weitesten Sinne des Wortes.

"Friend or Foe ... ?"

The skeptical view of the street vendor woman in Agra selling roasted corn knobs near the Taj Mahal in one of the surrounding small alleyways of Taj Ganj Area seems to say it all,
but ...

... is this just another nasty tourist taking my picture or a photographer taking his time, connecting and communicating with the local woman he likes to document in his street scene ?

No, the picture alone can't provide the answer, but it tells a story anyway and this is
exactly what is most important about photography, especially street photography,
that is ...

... telling a story, connecting with your subjects and establish a relationship with the viewers of your pictures as well.

I would really like to know what is going on in your mind when you are looking at the
woman watching you from the streets of Agra.

"Are you going to buy a corn knob of her, or simply taking a picture and walking away ?"
