All of the pictures here were taken with the permission of the subjects. When I asked these people if I could take their picture they said, "sure, go ahead" but when I looked through the viewfinder one of the men was giving me the finger. I put down the camera and said that I wouldn't take the shot if they didn't want me to. The guy making the gesture said "no, no, it's OK". He just wanted to throw the bird to the world. It makes sense to me.
