    This is kind of a "street" photo, except it was shot on a boat, ferrying passengers between Monhegan Island and the mainland (of Maine). I saw these three local kids, sitting together in the stern of the ferry, as far away from tourists and adults as possible. They were obviously quite accustomed to the ferry ride, and looked distinctly un-thrilled to be there, early in the morning (perhaps on their way to school). Getting a candid shot was made a bit more challenging by the motion of the boat through waves, but I thought this one turned out OK, and that the shot tells a story.

    It certainly conveys that "Are we there yet" feeling,

    This is a lovely shot and as the others have said really captures the moment. Slightly changing the subject but in today's climate I am terrified of photographing candid shots of other peoples children without permission, even in public places like this. I don't know how it is in the States but in UK an old man like me with a camera taking shots of children is a no no.

    I'm not a lawyer, but according to everything I've read in many sources, shooting in public is legal. Using a person's image for profit (e.g. in an advertisement or book) requires a signed release, but where no monetary aspect is involved, it's fair use, when the shots were taken in public. That's in the U.S., as I understand it. However, I have also read that the UK laws are very convoluted and far trickier; I sometimes wonder how anyone can do street photography there. But over here, I don't worry about shooting street scenes or crowds out in public view.

    In UK as long as it's a public place you can take photographs of anyone, and I do as long as they are adults. I would not photograph a unknown child without permission.

    That's true ... but ... you may find that as a paying passenger on a boat that it is not a public open space, and you may need the permission of the boat owner/operator.

    To each his own. My level of concern over any legal repercussions befalling me as a consequence of this photo falls somewhere between my worrying over being hit in the crotch by someone carelessly tossing the Hope Diamond out a car window, and my chances of finding a winning Irish Sweepstakes ticket stuck to the shoe of a wino in an alley in Soho. ;)

    Hope you dont think I was being critical in any way ... just stating the legal aspect especially here in the UK

    No, not at all. I didn't think you weren't being critical, you were just sharing a concern. Thanks.
