Can I take your picture?

I guess I’m not the only person who carries a digital camera with them wherever they go. (I mean everywhere. I even carry extra lithium batteries and a charger that I can use in the car.) If I’m in a public place – like a store – I usually ask if it’s okay to snap a photo. I don’t want them to think I’m casing the joint to steal something later. Everyone, so far, says sure – and then they thank me for asking. It strikes me as odd, but maybe here in the Kearsarge/Lake Sunapee area everyone is used to visitors and tourists taking photos of things that seem quaint, snapping the green landscape that they don’t get to see in the city or recording the sights and sounds of an event on film. And they are used to people not asking if it is okay. Here’s a few photos of Georges Mills from the parking area at Sargents Marina. There was no one around to ask for permission, but I did check with the two fuzzy dogs who came up to greet me. I think tail wagging and slobber mean yes.
