Street Photography

I don't know.... I just find it hard to point a camera in some strangers face on the street and take a picture .... it doesn't seem like a very nice thing to do...... but that's what people do when they practice street photography and a lot of the people who do this are not particularly nice people..... There's a lot of this genre of photography out there ..... check it out here and here.
I like taking pictures in the city, but I guess I like photos of buildings and more general street scenes then those where people are the main subjects.... it kind of feels like you're violating their space ... though it's legal to take these pictures, even when someone objects.
These were taken in my home town and are pretty tame by some standards..... no one was offended (I hope)..........
