I have been taking photographs since the age of 10, and I am 55 now. Street photography is what really keeps me going (I guess that is also why I specialised in photo journalism apart from photographic design at university). For the last 26 years I have been practising meditation, and Buddhism in general, too. I am very interested in what is "true" and "real". When I bought my first digital (compact) camera four years ago I started to experiment with shooting from the hip. This is something I couldn't have done with my old (and much loved) Minolta equipment. In this way I was able to take the camera of my face - and and I agree very much with what you have said about that, of course, had to get used to it first. I always try to be myself, to be in the Here and Now as much as possible, and to be warm and friendly to others. I only once had a problem when taking a picture in the street. This was in London when I visited the places where William Blake used to live. I was not even very much aware that in front of the big building on a busy street was a father with his little daughter. He told me that he did not want me to take a picture of her. This is England, where people are so claustrophobic and over-sensitive about anything that has to do with something that might smack of intimacy and kids.

As Americans, we’re surrounded by lots of crap that make our lives comfortable, which makes it really easy to just give up when things are difficult. There’s always the couch, a television to turn on." That is just amazing. Thank you. “If you’re going to do something, and you want to get better, you have to persist.

Just wanted to thank you for having written all this. It's more than inspirational because since I've only started on my photographic experience I stumble upon so many questions and insecurities, some of which I now have answers to. :D And yes, I'm in the same situation as j.u. - almost 3am and I can now go to sleep, having finished reading. And it's not treacly at all! It feels honest and passionate. So...thank you for the lessons and have a great summer! Hi!

Branching out from landscapes to more streetscapes that include people is my goal. I just bought a canon g9 to be less conspicuous, and lighten the weight, sometimes my dslr can be overkill. Lots of great information here. Keep up the good work. Hi, this site is great, stumbled across it looking at expanding my photo awareness.
