Hi Vivek, sorry for the delayed reply. Yes the street vendors, a lot of them have move into Food Court in shopping mails. I was in Cambodia last week and did some street shooting at their market. The street vendors were having a good laugh when I show them their pics. It was fun. I do not think I will get this type of response in Singapore.
I will try and let you know.
Hi Driscoll, sorry for the delayed reply. Silly me -- subway is right.
I like this one very much, Vivek.
22 years ago my wife and I and another couple went cycling in the Netherlands for three weeks. Because the other couple brought their 18-speed tandem (the man is blind and his wife "captains"), we also brought our North American "touring" bikes (multi-speed, racks and panniers). And we were decked out in North Amercian cycling gear, including helmets. The Dutch, who, aside from professional racers, are very practical and casual about cycling, thought we were very odd indeed. The children often pointed, smiled and laughed.
At a lunch stop one day, we met a Dutch couple who were also cycling for their holiday. They were riding the traditional one-speed Dutch "schooner" bicycles. I asked where they were headed, but they replied that they weren't sure, and it didn't really matter. "Each day, we put the wind at our backs and we cycle in that direction," said the man. "We go where the wind blows us."

Shortly after I took it, he wapped me over the head with his trumpet . . just joking. Next to him is the guy I call Rocketman - notice the rockets. The band was leading the procession around the village and Rocketman was letting one go every few hundred yards (what a wonderful job!). They finished at the church.
It is a girl, Don. Old fashioned bicycles are the norm here (and expensive) as well as women's and men's (cross bars) being distinct.
Though there are dedicated bicycle paths, accidents do happen, unfortunately.
Thanks John, Matt and Don for your comments.
Don, All G1. Nothing else in the m4/3rds would suit me. PMd you.
[It is the swivel TFT and the EVF (for the occasional use) that make me use this cam.
I look forward to that G2 as a possible upgrade- what I would like to see is that one touch manual focus assist (not critical), better S/N (and DR) and better ergonomics.]

The camera is the best in the format.

You and others do very well with it.
I will try to keep up.
Thanks again my friend,
Hard to get my head around that shot Brian. Cool!

Berlin, du kannst so haesslich sein, so dreckig und grau...
It is a single layer shot. Out of cam ! Made in Berlin, Friedrichstrasse. It is the former "Checkpoint Charly" which is now used to sell "ex-DDR-a-like-tourist-goodies". In the background, where there the lorry is parking, you see a crossway. That crossway was the line where the "Wall" ran thru the town. Yes, this place is a historical place and always full of tourists....
BTW: "Berlin, du kannst so haesslich sein ....", well known song by Peter Fox. Title: "Schwarz zu blau"

What a great thread with inspirational photos. I can't believe I haven't seen it before.
I would like to learn street photography and have started to practice a bit. All taken here in Trondheim with G1 and 20/1.7.
This one has a story:
The silhouette drawing is made by the police, to alert people of a crime that has been committed, and to ask witnesses to come forward.
The victim was a young girl who was beaten and kicked (but not killed, fortunately). The girl who happened to walk by looks a bit "dark and ghostly" because of motion blur, but I think it fits the scene, especially with the eyes in the background "watching her".
It was a combination of patience and luck. Inside the snack bar there is a screen on the back wall where they show ads. The eyes are just a way to grab people's attention, and they are only shown for a short while before there are more ads, then the eyes again etc.. I concentrated on capturing a "suitable" girl in the right position. I hoped to get the eyes too, but couldn't count on it. Of course I was very happy when I got home and saw this.
These are just snapshots, trying out the new camera:
