    They really need to finish the construction soon, traffic is crazy on fair oaks and raymond now. I work in the area and i must see at least 5-6 people doing street photography with m4/3 a day here. Real popular place.

    Great photos!

    I think after seeing these photos I am even more sure i need to get this lens. Your photos promote this lens perfectly. I love the round bokeh.

    Especially nice bokeh ... you've created a nice advertisement for Oly!

    This is strangely super specific, but I love the light on that payphone.

    Yes, I love the 5th one. The one before that was the one I took going in one direction. I then turned around and saw that he was visible between the pole and the wall, and it was like, "gasp" and *snap*. Got the photo just from my reaction.

    It's the moments like that that make street photography so special

    The fifth shot was the best of the bunch- "decisive moment"!

    Someone needs to show that kid in the tight jeans this photo in a year or two. I'd demand $500 to destroy the negative.
