A rare warm day brought this little boy to the local park.

I always ask the parents before beginning to shoot photographs of their kids playing. It seems only polite, and avoids any sort of confrontive misunderstandings… It is legal to photogaph anything in a public place, but asking is a courtesy that will benefit you in the long term.

I can’t remember more then a couple of times that anyone has said no. I carry business cards, of course, but I am rarely asked for even that limited identification.
