How did you get things like this? You are a chicken for humans, so I am a chicken for both :). About the rules and regulations, I also thought one is always allowed to take pictures in public area unless they put a warning sign in front of the entrance. Once a salesman told me the same thing, not to take pictures in the mall.
Ann, a clever shot ! Good spotting and composition.
Absolutely love it!
This is wonderful, and no need to deal with people. I'm a chicken, too, but I have asked occasionally and once even asked permission to put a photo on Pbase (a group of ladies at Cabela's). They said fine and I gave them the address.
I love the crop, the treatment and the light Ann. It's a really stylish one! Great!
that's because a mall is not a public place. it's privately owned. no doubt the policy is to protect the shops within the mall, as well as any potentially compromising photos that might've occured at the location that would be bad PR for the mall.
Great comp and light.
Fantastic light on this photo, Ann.
Tip One: Don't be a chicken. Look past the person you are about to shoot. Let them see you looking past them. Raise the camera and shoot.
you should get into the fashion business. :)
very slick and clean cut.

Damn this is cool...wonderful composition and lighting!!
Malls are usually private property; the trick is to not use the viewfinder.
You really have got what it takes. GMV
I believe he's related to a family at Sleepy Hollow :)
Could be an ad in GQ. Super, Ann.
I like the lighting and composition. It really can be a product photo.

great shot, kindof speaks volumes about shyness anyway. As far as I knew, you were allowed to take pictures in public places, maybe the guard was just overly cautious.
Very cool crop! Love it! Great tones and lighting!
I like this a lot..b&w was the way to go..awesome lighting..love the framing..v
Suse is correct shopping mall is considered a private property.
Wonderful lighting and composition.--Rene
Wonderful image. Great composition and exposure.
Fantastic shot. Very stylish. I suspect the shopping mall thing is because it isn't actually a public space, as such... Somebody, a company, probably owns and leases it to the other shops...? I sometimes wonder, too, is as women, we get more 'confrontation' as photographers. The irony is, I doubt anyone would have said anything if you had been holding a mobile phone camera...?
Puttin on the Ritz !!
The laws here are changing re public photography...especially children in sporting events ie: poolside, track !!
That's weird, that you're not allowed to take pictures in a mall...
So, you're chicken too eh, about photographing people? Me too, I just can't do it!
But this one is a really great alternative :-)
Try asking for permission. That really surprises them.
eeeekkk he has no head!
