Street photography is filled with many instances when one has to simply go out and get the shot, this is one of those times.

As I finished my photo walk through Downtown and I walked towards my car, all of a sudden my gaze went across the street where these kids were waiting for the bus. In that moment, I knew I had to stop everything and grab that shot.

Dichotomy of Belief — Ricoh GRD III


I walked over with the “ricoh” and pretended I was waiting for the bus and I basically took about 5 to 6 shots which were ok but not really compelling. I then remembered Capa’s famous quote “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough” and then I basically stood in front of them as I look elsewhere and click. Such is the stealthiness of this digicam.
