Fuji X-E2 – 35mm at f/8

This street scene feels more organic to me.  I was on the other side of the street hangin’ out.  I’m sure they were aware of my presence, however, I did not jump in and start taking pictures.  Rather, I hung back looking at other things knowing full well I wanted this shot.  Eventually after they forgot about me, I was able to raise my camera in their direction and make this image.

I found having a small camera is indeed a benefit for street photography.  People do not seem to mind near as much as those having the big guns. I also learned having a fixed focal length is not a hindrance at all, in fact I would say 80% of my shooting on this trip was with prime lenses.  Having the 1.4 f/stop on the 35mm and 23mm lenses is great for many situations.
