Street: City Stories…

A few more street photography images from some lunchtime sessions in the city – whereas most of my other street images were taken with a wide angle lens (17-50mm) I thought I’d try going out with a long lens (my Nikon 70-300mm which is a very nice and sharp lens, however it isn’t anywhere near as fast as my f/2.8 lens). It’s interesting being forced to take all shots using just the one lens and with street photography you wouldn’t get the chance to change lenses anyway before the moment is lost. You have to move around a lot more to prepare for and compose your shots.

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay gallery viewer.

This last is a Diptych of two images taken of a gentleman down on his luck keeling right on on the kerb on the corner of George and Park streets in front of the Queen Victoria Building
