wow shat an awesome capture. love it in Black and white. great DOF

just curious did you ask him to take his picture did you just take it. I love street photography but sometimes a little nervous if the person catches me. #10952997

Thanks, Rita. In this case, I did not ask him for permission. Sometimes I ask and most of the time, people are very cooperative. I generally ask when the subject and I are close and they are either engaged in an activity or standing/seated. If it's more of a random situation, I generally take the shot without asking. Plus if you have a long lens, it's much easier to be discreet. #10954088
