Ansel Spear: In other words, take a photo of absolutely everything in sight and post-rationalise why you took it.

Almost.
Compose everything in sight.
Let the shutter tell you when to trip it.

gbdz: Heh, I have Salgado, Penn, and HCB on my living room table.
My conclusion is that some people are born with a gift of seeing that no amount of learning can replace.
It is easy to spot the diagonals and hot spots on somebody else's pictures but totally another thing to try and see them while you are in the situation yourself.
Then again (or "having said that") photography has taught me to see in a way that gives me great pleasure. Like fumbling with a bass guitar has taught me to listen to the bass lines.
Doing is the best way to learn.
BTW a great set of pictures.

Don't look for them.
Let them look for you.

On article 2017 in review: a look back at October (15 comments in total)

Forward to late December 2020.
DPR drops (12) months' "Look Back" format,
introduces (52) weeks' "Look Back" format...

"We ranked (52) weeks of 2020 product introductions
& now we begin the countdown to #1 week. Starting
at #52 is a week that had only 8 new products introduced,
none of them especially notable, it was..."

(yes, I'm taking a break from tagging-processing)

In reply to:

Jeff Greenberg: Ban = within 400 feet = arrest...?
401 feet up to still within sight = security guards target practice...?

That's what you think!

Worst of all about this tragedy,
it reminds me I can't do even one proper pull-up.

I'm always behind on the latest lingo.
When did "lowering overhead" become
"shooting with vintage digital compacts" ???

On article 4 times when a Hail Mary might be the right move (94 comments in total)

"The photojournalism didn’t stop even during a break in a cramped bathroom at the King County Fair. July 1989. Photo and caption by Peter Haley"

Off-topic, but...
This image, AFAIK, constitutes legal invasion of privacy.
Not the publishing of image, the "taking" of the image.
In USA, at least...
Unless permission of both individuals was obtained...

Jeff Greenberg: No one can claim this scheme succeeded or failed
until incoming tourism dollar trends can be detected...
Bergum doesn't benefit from free publicity until
enough people act on it...

If they don't realize additional tourism dollars,
then success of stunt is measured after a couple of
years by weight of a single Trivial Pursuit card...
or a Double Jeopardy answer followed by a question
in which someone might make $2000, which is
$2000 more than Bergum made...
Someone could even lose their job over it in
couple years if "laughing with" turns into laughing at...
Bergum jokes Polish jokes kind of thing...
Why did Bergum ban ______?
(common sense) (beautiful women) (restaurants) blah blah blah

But then again, tourism dollars might increase from stunt...

On article Juggling with one hand: Leica M10 shooting experience (487 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jeff Greenberg: "The small size and unobtrusive appearance of the M10 (once the ostentatious red dot has been taped over) tends not to draw much attention."

From this, writer has little experience shooting in Orient.
A pointed camera draws little attention, often none at all,
in Japan, China (except UK influenced Hong Kong), vs. in "The West".
One exception would be street vendors who have tired
of flashes popping in their face...

You have made my point!!!!!!!!!
I said UK-influenced Hong Kong exception.
You are Western-influenced English reading-writing Asian.
Tse Tse & arigatto for supporting my position.
Checkmate.

> it's your look

Small percentage, maybe.
It seems to be about Asians not paying nearly as
much attention to their peripheral vision, for
whatever reason. And-or about being less inclined
to confrontations... Westerners being more
assertive with protection of privacy, etc. But
even Westerners in public places have now been
"forced" towards more tolerance by constant
parade of smartphone camera encounters...
