There was a time that I was really into street photography and photo journalism. I walked the streets, wanting to get that perfect black and white shot. I joined rallies and protest marches, running as the crowd ran.
I was that new guy with the bright shiny camera back then. The one that’s too shy to train a lens on any living person.
Somehow, I now find it quite ironic, looking some years back. I can’t imagine a street photographer too shy to point a camera and shoot a person face to face.
