As a street shooter, I often prefer to catch life as it happens, subjects unaware. But sometimes, as with this image of the bird man in Washington Square Park I know I want to take more than just a couple of sneaky shots. So I asked permission and once granted, I can relax and work on capturing the best frame. Sometimes the subject is self-conscious and aware of being photographed. But all seemed natural to me with this image.
