School Days in Mennonite Country

The author has 3 nice photos in this photo essay although his concerns in the last part are something to think about – is it an invasion of privacy and immoral to take these photos? I don’t think so, but I thought the photos could have been much better if the author had been able to photograph the kids from the front instead of shooting their backs and arousing suspicions.
Street photography is almost always difficult and add to that, on a “lonely country road” I can’t imagine any kids who’d stop to have their photograph taken by a stranger..
