As per the title. I don't get it. I love photographs that mean something to me, that shock me, make me want to keep looking and going back to it. I don't understand why you would cram up your hard drive with photos of an empty coke can on the floor or some tramp sitting in his own excrement? Genuine question, what am I not seeing?

Its about our environment (as in where we live) and the people in it. Some people don't care about those things so Street Photography wont appeal. I feel the same about flower photography. The idea of striving to take a technically perfect picture of a flower leaves me cold.

f/2.8 is a smaller number than f/22 in the same way that 100 is a smaller number than 20.
