Not so welcome

I went to a Hispanic Pentecostal church this evening for one of their services. I was interested in doing a story about them, so I decided to just show up and ask if I could take some photos. After some thought the pastor OKed it, but after shooting for an hour or so he came to the back of the room where I was and told me (in Spanish) that it was too personal for me to take any more photos. Not knowing quite how to explain what I wanted to tell him in Spanish, I left. I don't think I was too forward or obtrusive. I hung out in the back of the room and didn't shoot too much. Maybe I'll write him a letter in my botched Spanish and send him some photos to show him where I'm coming from.

Someone in the last picture isn't feeling the touch of little lord baby Jesus, was that man crying?

Also, please post more photos of excited teenage girls.

You should totally email him some pics -- these are awesome.

photos don't have a language barrier, so maybe showing him your pictures will say what you couldn't.
