Raaj, your story was very interesting to me, because it tells me that we operate in largely the same way. It's amazing to many people, what you can achieve with a smile and some small talk.

Buying some small items (like fruit or nuts) also creates a lot of goodwill.

I shot candid portraits at a market in France:

When people ask me for a print, I also make the promise to deliver it to them.

In my case, I left home on the next day, but I had collected some addresses and have sent prints to the addresses.

This man in particular was extremely skeptical about getting his portrait shot at first, but he gave in and eventually offered me tea. His son told me that he would be delighted to get the portrait, so I sent them an A4-size print by mail :

lots of images:

It is amazing how far a quick conversation and genuine interest in people goes, isn't it?  Glad to see you're being well served by this.  Kudos to you for keeping your word and mailing images to people you meet and promise to send images to.

Lovely portrait too!

Thanks much, Roel.
