    Thanks Will, I really enjoyed that. And he used my new favourite camera word from Streetshooter - juxtaposed

    Thanks for that. I think my feelings about the experience of street shooting are very much the same as his - its probably nearly universal among people who do this kind of photography. If only my images were in that league.... But no matter, I doubt he enjoys the process any more than any of us and that's sort of the point. I'm glad he made his work available though.

    Thanks. I thought it an interesting and refreshingly straight forward insight.
    I love a lot of his images as well and it's inspired me to go out and do some shooting myself as soon as I get the chance. Been a little jaded lately so it I'm glad I came across it.

    Streetshooter, just a note to say thanks for such judicious advice at this juncture, next time I'll be there in a jiffy. Hopefully I'll come away with a feeling of jubilation.

    If not I'll try reciting The Jabberwoky which usually does the trick


    'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!"

    He took his vorpal sword in hand:
    Long time the manxome foe he sought--
    So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! and through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
    He chortled in his joy.

    'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.
