I grew more and more frustrated, and kept pushing myself to see differently without people or with making the best images possible with whomever was there.  I had to be efficient knowing if I didn’t get something good from that person, it could be a while before someone else comes along.  It also forced me to approach people and have a conversation to ease them into the fact I was not going to leave and I was on a mission.
