Nice shots. I have always wondered though what street shooters do with all these pics of strangers on their hard drive?

Hmmm ... good question.  Firstly, I prune these sort of urban / street pics drastically, as the vast majority are simply not worth keeping. The rest I edit, and keep only those that have some particular quality or dynamic that appeals to my artistic side. For my part I judge "people pictures" much as I would do with any collection of images, be they of rocks at a beach, or discarded industrial parts, and keep only ones that work. Street shooting is a fascination to many, and has been around since the days of Walker Evans. He and his fellow pioneers took a vast number of photos of strangers, storing prints and negatives in boxes or folders, so I guess nothing much has really changed ... !

Thanks.
