Shot some street stranger portraits on my lunch break today.

All with the Q and 01

Learn how to live and you'll know how to die; learn how to die, and you'll know how to live.

Check out ones photographs on Flickr!

Like them...
Always surprises me that you can get pics of strangers...
I don't have the confidence to do that...wouldn't know what to say...I'd be afraid to get into trouble...some folk are very touchy these days.

In a past life, I confidently took news photos of anyone within lens range. But the idea of snapping strangers for "private" purposes would fill me with dread. Admiration, QC. Your results during your project show it's worth the effort.

It's one thing taking the photos for yourself, but surely another publishing them without the agreement of the subject? Or am I wrong?
If you got permission from the subjects then fair do, well done!

There's no privacy law in the UK and permission is not needed to publish these photos. It's something that might be different in other countries.

I like them all apart from the last one, where the focus has missed the eyes and the hat is sharper.
Best regards, John

Thanks for clarification John, but begs the question as to why Google Street view blurs faces in their UK data if they don't need to.
Also the issues as to why schools forbid cameras at sports events and nativity plays.

I'd raise those points in another thread so we don't hijack this one?
Best regards, John
