Street Photography

Ever since I can remember I've had the desire to take 'street' photographs. Photographs of ordinary people going about their ordinary lives.

I know there are debates that rage about whether it is right or wrong to take a person's photograph without their permission and I can, I suppose, see the argument but for me, to ask to take someone's photo is to invite them to 'pose' and then the photo loses something....its authenticity I suppose. When I take street photos, I want them to be real with no hint of awareness on the part of the subject if I can possibly help it.

I'm comfortable with that....
