It was harder than usual to get someone to take a picture of today. After getting turned down about five times, she agreed. She told me that she didn't like getting her picture taken. However, she agreed to it for some odd reason.
I think I don't really take into account how difficult it must be to agree to having a complete stranger take your portrait. It seems that the colder it is, the harder it is to get someone to stop and chat for a few minutes. I am interested to see the change in attitude when the warmer weather comes.
