    I decided the other night after getting off work that I would go out and try something different since the weather was very nice. I am not much of a "street" photographer but I have always admired it, so I figured I would give it a shot. I went down to a local shop area that I visit often during the day and wondered around for about a hour and half. I restricted myself to only shoot in b/w to make things alittle different(plus that area is all yellow light and I cant stand yellow light :smile: ) I was very surprised how different everything looks when at night in b/w. it gave me a totally new view of a very common area. I highly recommend anyone who has never tried it to do so.

    All these where shot handheld with the G5 and sigma 19mm,

    Thanks for confirming. I used hang out at Tewligan's in the Early 90's when I had hair and knees that worked. Some great evenings were had in the Highlands...... if only I could remember them.

    Glad the area had retained some character and your pics capture that.
