I started to shoot street photography in the early 1970s in the Los Angeles area,
Street Photography for me is the trick of that candid shot, not the paparazzi “Bang flash in your face” but people doing their thing unconcerned of a photographer near by…
A funeral procession walks past my street set-up, camera on my knee. Even the children are looking at my display not the camera.
Or right behind the children,
and of course my street vendors, ‘agua’ & coco are easy, but I enjoy the fact he does his thing & even the traffic is of no concern as I snap this shot of him preparing my bag of fresh coconut pieces.
So years of carrying the cameras, knowing where the buttons are & do, I quietly photograph the life as it is happening in the natural surrounding.
