Default To don_narayan: voyeurism

Hi Narayan,

Thank you for your comment and honest opinion.

You are of course entitled to find this a voyeuristic shot, but I still somehow feel offended as there is nothing in photography I dislike more than voyeurism.

I certainly always approach people in the most of respect and in my modest opinion also did so here.
My heart goes out to this woman and through my sadness I tried to capture her own as I capture happiness or any other feeling. To me that is what this image is about.
I would never photograph people from a indignant or disabled side as to me that is not acceptable - except for the right photography (reportage etc) and I honestly feel I tried and achieved a very respectful portrait of a woman I do respect tremendously.
