I don’t do much street photography. It usually involves people and I have something of aversion to taking pictures of people I don’t know. Once in a while I’ll give it a try though, just to see what kind of results I can get. This was taken somewhere (I don’t remember exactly where) on the east side of Manhattan. I do recall that I was using a Sony NEX 5n with a Canon 50mm f1.4 in Leica thread mount. Since I had no autofocus and I can’t focus manually quickly I’d pre-focused on the grid in the middle of the road and waited for someone to come by. For once I managed to get the focus about right. All in all I quite like it, but I don’t see me spending lots of time on this genre.
