Do's and Don'ts

I think what some forum members are suggesting is a prevailing notion held by many street shooters. Don't go for the easy shots of street performers and homeless. These tend to be banal and done to death.

I would have squatted and shot from a lower perspective. You could still include his hat in the foreground and safe in the background. Getting interesting patterns, shapes, textures, side-lighting, and shadows make for more interesting B&W photos and can elevate a shot from an ordinary snapshot to a keeper.
