    The first one made me laugh...I think you owe me a new keyboard for the water I spit out. :p

    Seriously though, I really like these. I'm too much of an introvert to do anything even remotely close to street photography, but I'm digging these shots.

    Man just do it, it's a lot of fun! Just sit down at a restaurant on a busy street and order some drinks and shoot away. Most people wont even notice you and the ones that do mostly seem flattered you found them interesting enough to take a pic. Also, a lens that gets you close helps a lot.

    I don't really get the whole 'street photography' thing myself. It just seems like intruding on strangers' privacy for the sake of it. It's not as if any of these people are particularly interesting, I mean a busker or homeless person I could understand, but a fat woman eating an ice cream doesn't seem like something you'll print and hang your wall.

    Man where do you live...I see people wearing shorts, tank tops, jeans, sweatshirts, dresses, heavy coats. Where ever it is, I think your weather man sucks!

    Good street is hard to do well. If you want to continue with this style, you need to get more personal, and your photographs have to say something or illustrate composition. These are not engaging, probably because you were not engaged; easier said than done, I realize.

    I'm with Gaerek on this one. I really like street photography, but am a bit of an introvert. I'm trying to build myself up to it eventually. In the meantime, I shoot landscapes, my dog, my wife, and whatnot.

    I like #1 - I actually thought it was a senile old man walking around in his bathrobe, eating ice cream :lmao:

    #2 is nice too - makes you wonder what he was laughing about.

    good point - 1, 4 and 5 would have connected on a much higher level if those three had been looking directly at the camera. #1 wouldn't have been so 'voyeuristic' watching the 'big' lady stuffing her face, but more like 'sharing the ice cream experience' with her.

    I think 2 and 3 could have benefited maybe in the same way, but really like the candid look of the kid in green.

    Yeah add me to that list too. I get shy just having my camera out where people can see me with it, even if it's not pointed at them.

    I like the black and white ones - #1 and #3 seem a bit over-saturated to me, though it works okay for them.
