Giraffe Petting #2
Some kids petting the Giraffes.... My motives for taking these pictures was: There was a certain joy in watching these children innocently stroking these giant creatures without fear of being bitten or coming to harm.... I found this fascinating. But for some reason I felt a pang of guilt because I was taking a picture and in this picture I was also capturing the image of other people's children... I had no malice or ill-intent but was acutely aware that I may have accidentally upset numerous parents in the direct vicinity........ Think I should probably dig out a the do's and don'ts of photography and see what the legal status is when it comes to taking pictures in public.Taken by jsmcbride with a Yashica FX-3 loaded with Konica Minolta Centuria 1600 film in Oxford, United Kingdom.
