The Sidewalks Of New York

Street photography is something that really interests me. I haven’t had the chance to just walk the streets with my camera, but here are some I took in and around  NYC with my cellphone and edited with Instagram

It is hard to take pictures of the Amish without them knowing it, but today I figured out something that makes it easier. I have a Canon 60d with the rotating LCD, so I hung my camera around my neck and shot from the hip with the LCD screen tilted up and that way I can take pictures a lot less obviously.  (Brilliant, I know 😉 … It takes me awhile to figure some stuff out…)  I think she did notice the camera being pointed at her, because she stepped to the side just as I took the picture.
