Urban Streets (part 2)

Everyday people, doing everyday things. Some tell a story, others are the people watcher's take.

This guy at the "Shoe Hospital" saw me outside with my camera and asked me to come and and take his photo. I got all excited and didn't watch my setting.

These two were security people at the building behind me. They were not too pleased with me taking their photo. One of the came up and asked me if I was a tourist. I responded yes and she said "Oh Ok" and moved on. Not  sure how being a tourist made a difference...I can only surmise.

This lady definitely wanted her photo taken.

He was an interesting guy to capture. He was passing out stuff to people, like beads or something but I didn't want to hang around too long to find out.

Thank you Jay you are always very gracious. I must say my husband is not a photographer "at all" neither in front or behind the camera, but he is a proponent of my work so he makes sure to get to the blog at least once a day    (only because he never knows when I post) but his reaction was very similar to your.  Although he did say  he did not like #12, he just could not understand what was going on. Thank you for your encouragement smile
