Default The price of giving someone a cigarette...

I gave this homeless guy a cigarette, and he got a bit confused as to who actually gave it to him, and spent the next ten minutes telling stories of his native country (Russia) to these innocent bystanders. He was trying to pay them back for their generosity...






Quite clearly, he appreciated the smoke.

Excellent. I love the down and dirty street shots.

I'm taking your advice on getting close to people. From now on, when anyone posts something negative, I'm going to blame you...

Like the closest of the shots, shots #1 and #2 are my picks.

LOL, Truly great street shots do start out by getting close and personal. Your DP2 I believe is a great tool as well...I am really pondering one of those. Have you tried setting it to hyperfocal?

Not intentionally...

But it's a very flexible machine. Unobtrusive, superb IM. At night, I shoot full manual, during the day I let the camera make the decisions. At the moment I don't have as much time as I used to.
