"The trouble with most street photography is thinking with a street photographer mentality, rather than as a photographer who is in a new situation. As a result most so-called street photography is actually documentary, just documenting life on the street rather than creating something new and interesting."

How many years ago was that taken? Not sure the Army has any  C-47 aircraft today, but I know that plane is still in service around the world.  Nice unusual capture.  gc

Ah those were the days.  My brother-in-law was on the DMZ at that time too.  I made it to Kunsan in '63, the 10th anniversary of the truce as part of a show of force just in case.  .  Spent a lot of time in the far east and loved all of it.  gc

Thank you too.  It's a lifelong learning curve. but the longer I live, the more wisdom I need and it's in short supply.  gc
