Using a Leica camera as did Henri Cartier-Bresson, I have always considered myself a street photographer but obviously in a different league from the master. Thinking about it, the very action of holding a Leica rangefinder camera encourages street photography. Its compact size and almost silent shutter make it the perfect tool.
What is street photography? For me its the seamless joining together of "being on the street" and "catching the moment".
I hope you find this gallery and my explanation of how the photographs came to be taken interesting. The music that accompanies the slideshow is "Beneath the Mistletoe" by Ali Handal
