I took the above photograph in Bangkok outside the 'Bangkok River Cruise Tours', where you get on boat to see Bangkok's temples on the Chao Praya River. I saw this lady sat on the boat I took the camera and took the photograph. I did not want her to look at the camera; her sitting there made me wonder what is she thinking, where is looking (as there was nothing behind me just the river).
It is always good to have an interaction with your subject, however this image would not have been the same if I asked her to look at the camera. The misty of her expression would have been lost. The final image works for me, it is just the way I had pictured in my mind.
