Guest Photo of the Day: Mother's little helper

Mother's little helper, originally uploaded by Pete Zelewski.
This is what I aspire to: the ability to walk through a market in London and snap a candid portrait, on the fly, that is so beautiful, so perfectly lit and composed, and so full of life and soul. This child has absolutely no barriers between her and the camera--you can just look right into her eyes and get a glimpse of her soul. It's a fantastic shot! How do you suppose the photographer, Pete Zelewski, did it? Did he ask her to pose for him? Or did he just engage her in conversation, ask her to show him the coin she'd collected, and snap the photo before she realized she was being photographed?
