    Nice shots Sabesh. No one seems to have noticed you taking the pictures.
    What camera do you shoot with?

    I must have this lens.

    Thank you! I shot these with an Olympus E-P2. The lens has great resolving power, so I was able to crop some of the pictures. Cheers.

    Yes I agree with AZ, not cause we're both from Arizona but we both appreciate the shots.

    Great framing and timing. Love shot no. 2, concentration and zeroed in on the game within a busy place.

    Keep em coming.

    I'm going for the block and shackles as my favourite, but then I'm always a little shy when it comes to photographing people. I must have a trip to town and put my example of this lens to the test.

    I enjoyed all of them scrolling up and down trying to figure out what foreign country they were taken in......only to realize that they were shot in Toronto!!!!

    Great photography!!:2thumbs:

    Once you go out and shoot once, your inhibitions will be gone and you will become confident at taking people pics. Mind you, I've been yelled at a few times, but most people just don't mind :)


    Thanks Bill! These were mostly taken at Queen St (near Yonge) and the Harbourfront area :)

    Thanks sabesh, I'll certainly give it a go, means a special journey to the big city from my rural retreat, so I'll be in an alien environment as well, big test in both senses, camera, lens and me :smile:

    Hey i like the one with the two guys playing chess. The reason this has caught my eye is that i have seen a few pics that others have shown with the same thing. People playing Chess. It must be something that is done over that way cause I've never seen it in Australia. It looks like it creates a relaxed atmosphere.

    Barrie, try and hit places where there are a lot of tourists. People there don't seem to mind their pictures being taken. I've taken street pics in the UK (London - big city & Inverness - small town). Best of luck :) Cheers.


    Thank you! Yes, people in Toronto appear to like outdoor chess once springs comes around. I've seen this in Vancouver too (Robson Street). Cheers.

    I really like 1,4 and 5..... 90mm isn't this the best lens for street, but you did well...

    Thanks! The resolution of this lens is quite good, so I was able to crop some of the pics to isolate subject matter. Cheers.
