The decisive moment.......... by LordLJCornellPhotos The decisive moment.......... by LordLJCornellPhotos
There was a time some years ago when I did street photography. This was shot on negative b/w film in Oxford.
It is my gift to :iconmep-photography: for her birthday. A wonderful lady who deserves the best things life can be. :hug:
I hope this will be a surprise for her as I know she enjoys street photography and I don't think she is aware that I used to
do this kind of thing. A real "one from the archives" for dear Maryellen :hug:

Good street photography to me is much like bird watching. All it takes is reflexes. I consider it a sport above everything else :P

Indeed. It is about the decisive moment. 
No time for thought. Just reaction.

wonderful capture....

I too used to do street photography, years ago for sure.

I loved it, but more and more people who were on the street
started protesting at having candid photos taken of themselves
and many said it was invasive and started saluting with the
middle finger wave if they saw someone pointing a camera 
at them...

Yes, it's not very popular in London.
I used to do this when I couldn't get out into the countryside. 
I don't do it anymore.

It is not popular here that much anymore ....

I was asked to shoot a town picnic one year,
and I was going from group to group, getting
photos for the newspaper, and someone called
the police on me for taking photos of the children
playing on the swings and sandboxes.

I was asked for my credentials and I pointed out the
Host of the Picnic.  He was all the credentials I had,
but I put away my cam and have not taken photos of
people or groups since.

As far as I am concerned, I do not decide to do street photography : it is by chance, with an interesting situation, that I do it

It's not easy and I don't like doing it in London anymore. It's not very popular with people or police.
