Guildford never feels as inspiring as my trips to london, but here's a selection from recent times.

Thanks, I've come to the end of a telephoto phase now - this weekend it's been all 35mm :D

I like them a lot.  Expressions of the people told stories.

Love these beautiful and candid street shots. I like the #8 and #11 most. You captured them nicely.

Hmmmm... a wee bit boring perhaps? Because of lacking context I suppose. Take a good look at the pictures of Ed van der Elsken and let yourself be inspired by him. I believe a selection of his photographs is available in a book called Amsterdam!, still in print. Success!

Thanks for sharing Dan, I enjoyed viewing your photos.

Question, why so many black and white when we live in a world of colors?

If colour is the reason for me taking the photo, then it'll likely be left in colour.

If it's emotion, a scene with a story, etc.. colour often distracts and I'll choose mono. Mono really helps to show the soul in photos - not to say mine are THAT good :) but it does make a night and day difference to me.

Besides since posting this thread, I do less telephoto in the street now - use my 35mm a lot more

If left in colour, you'd see the colours of their suitcases - who cares what colour they are :) that is not the point of the photo.

Thanks, but they do get me a lot of grief :) it's like you can't take photos for enjoyment unless they conform to everyone's individual belief. Sometimes it's enough to make me forget that there are other people who like them.
