It's all about light and timing. If you happen to nail both you're golden. Either by accident or by design......sometimes a combination of both!
My photographing philosophy is simple. I tend to shoot first and ask questions later. I figure it is easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission. More often than not if I have to ask then the shot is already lost that had inspired me to take it in the first place. If there is a line to be crossed I usually have one foot over it. If no one is watching then I am over as far as I need to get the shot. Always respectful, but in pursuit of the ultimate photo you have to be willing to take some chances. No risk, no rewards.
