While I was walking on a rather quiet street, I noticed a group of men playing cards and thought that would be an amazing picture. At first, I was just pretending to take a picture of the landscape just to gather some courage; after few seconds I just smiled at one of them and asked if they were up for a picture. They all laughed and agreed (or at least that’s what I understood, they spoke mainly in Croatian).
Sometimes it seems hard to take pictures of strangers, but at the end it’s easier than it seems.
Just smile and ask.
