(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #204 – Nishiki Generations

Next-Gen-NishikiThird generation fish monger.  Or maybe fourth. Either way, totally adorable.  I rarely take photos of people, I don’t seem to get it right very often and I am shy about asking permission (which I feel strongly you should do).

But this guy was too cute!

How about you? Do you like taking photos of people?

About Andi Fisher

I'm a lifestyle blogger focused on travel and food. A marketing gal who gave up my job to travel around the United States in an RV with my hubby. I'm now settling into the Portland area where I'm looking for my next career adventure! I love to travel via my stomach. Eating, seeking out local artisans and features to share. I've got more than 26 years of experience in marketing focused on content, social media, and direct marketing and I've mentored many bloggers, old and new.


  1. I’m the same way with taking photos of people. I always want to, but I get nervous about asking them. Japanese kids are so cute, my husband always wanted to take home one of the Japanese toddlers he was teaching.

  2. When I first got into blogging I hired the Blog Maven to help me through some stumbling blocks. 3 years ago when I started my blog, photography was one of those blocks. She gave me a few pointers, one of which was to take photos of people. I don’t do it as often as I should but I do enjoy it when a unique or poignant face comes along.

      @Murissa, like I said to Stew, if I was better at it I would probably take more (with permission) but I just haven’t gathered the skills to take good portraits yet, still working on food 😉

  3. love the phots

  4. Oh, so adorable!

      @Colleen, he was, and so chill, I would think he would get bored after awhile and cry, but every time I saw him throughout the week he looked happy!

  5. I always ask for permission about taking a photo and feel weird about it. What a cute pic.

  6. Yes, I agree with you. We try not to take pictures of people for the same reason. Sometimes it is unavoidable. Even when we’re racing around taking photos for the books, we will wait until everyone is out of camera view.

    • Andi Fisher says:

      @Stew, I want to be respectful, and I am just not that great at taking “people” photos but there are times when someone has a beautiful style or a face that tells a story and I really want to!

    I do like taking pictures of people, though I will admit that I don’t generally ask for permission. However, I don’t have a blog and any time I’ve taken these pictures, it was with my old Nikon 35mm, so these pictures really don’t end up on view in any way. So I don’t feel bad about not asking permission. If I was going to be putting the pictures up for public consumption, however, I would definitely try to ask permission where feasible.
