James, you do have a great eye, a photographer's eye! I watched the album twice, with pleasure.

PS. I don't think you need to hipsterize your pictures--Lomo flare, expired looks, tilted horizons, forced foreground blur, all too commonplace to count as "style" or"vision". The reality one can glimpse through and despite these formalisms (i.e. what you saw in the first place) is truly beautiful at times; the formalisms, more ofthen than not, distract... and detract.

i know. the "could not help myself" factor was obvious... 8) fortunately, even "what everyone is doing" cannot obscure your obvious gift! be good, you're on my watch list ;)

Seeing the caption, I see now why I had a feeling of familiarity when you showed this photo at the talks you were doing with Ryan.

Yes, I know, my idea of "street photography" doesn't include people...

which begs the question: Can it be called street photography if there is no street?
