This is my favourite from my first attempt at street photography. I did not feel comfortable taking pictures of people I don't know but have always wanted to try this genre. I hope that the couple in the picture would see the humor in it that I do.

I find the picture is pretty well composed, but somewhat lacks interest (now if a crocodile was following them ). I'm sure as you gain more practice, you'll find more interesting stories to tell. Gary Winogrand took thousands and thousands of shots, he had thousands of rolls of undeveloped film when he passed away. A lot of success is in the editing of shots, and finding those unique ones, which is difficult to do when first starting out.

I like those quotes. The last one I think is the real key...and the one I always try to ask myself and not always successfully.
