Texting.. some people send hundreds of texts every day. How sore are their fingers?
I’ve never seen a cap with the text “building” before 🙂 nice shot.
Me neither! Thanks! I spotted him as I walked out of a side street and snapped off 3 or 4 shots!
How do you get these street shots? I presume you’re not using your 20D for this! 🙂 Do you shoot from the hip? Have you ever been confronted or anything?
I don’t think I’d have the guts to do something like that for fear of being caught!
nice building…i mean texting 😉
I shoot from the hip. as I walked past I managed to take several shots and as you can see from this thumbnail, I wasn’t that close. The above image is cropped tightly and wouldn’t print that big, but for the web, it’s fine. The 20D is a 8.2MP camera leaving plenty of pixels to work with!
Check out Captured 4 Life for some amazing portraits by Dean, who asked people permission to take their photos!
Enygma – I have been confronted a few times. Most notably by a man selling balloons. I blogged about it but I can’t for the life of me find the photo. If I find it later I’ll add it here!
excellent photo. great composition; i love the tight crop.
Great shot. I really love how you cropped it – nice and tight. I’ve enjoyed a lot of your street photography, but for some reason this one really sticks out. It almost looks like it could be used in an ad or something.
Thanks for the positive comments! And to think, I came back from that day of shooting feeling sorry for myself because the light had been so bad I was sure I hadn’t any decent shots!
Ya I was thinking this one could be used in an ad too for some reason. Looks like one.
Great crop in this shot. Yeah I agree with enygma looks like an ad. Black & white works really well here.
I often see the scene like this shot in Tokyo.

Looks like one of the Oasis Bros. Good Shot.
Great job with the crop and processing. Like the look of this one.
I’m getting sadder and sadder by the minute. The balloon man is here. http://blogs.linux.ie/xeer/2005/08/14/all-around-cork-in-august/
Thanks Matt! The story of what happened is here: http://blogs.linux.ie/xeer/2005/09/13/photojournalists-what-can-happen/
Thankfully the LCD on the back of the camera wasn’t good enough to let him realise he was very recognisable!
