You just never know what you can come across while taking a walk on the streets, and I guess that is what makes street photography so interesting. The trick to being successful with street photography is to carry with you a camera that is not too obtrusive or conspicuous. People are generally more relaxed and at ease when they see you with a small camera..they do’nt mind your being there. Just remember to be respectful and polite.
And quite often they are even happy to pose for you…..just talk to them, ask for their permission to take their picture, and you walk away as happy and satisfied as they are.
Keep looking around for things of interest, and you will find them. Very often we pass people or things that we take for granted……spend a moment to observe, take the scene in, and make your picture. These guys were having a hard day at work, and just continued doing what they were doing…
And then at times we get a bit lucky, and are rewarded with things that are not too commonly seen on the street; – like this father taking his children for a ride on the elephant.
