Daily Prompt-Faceless


Standing in the incorrect position when…

 photographing this clock made it

almost appear to be faceless.

The ‘grey nature’ of our online publishing laws

sees most of my ‘people’ photos faceless,

unless the have agreed to their image

being used online.

I don’t know how other countries operate,

but in Australia this couple being in a public place

(Trevi Fountain) were fair game, to photograph.

 However to publish this photo and without making

their faces hard to recognise, requires permission.

I find this a little strange as most people today

have social media sites littered with selfies.

And NO-ONE has EVER asked my permission

to publish my photo on

their website/Facebook page.
