Street Photography

I've taken a few street shots around my new home town of Southend but hadn't gone out in anger.  I swapped out a lens that only fit for my old camera for a 12-40mm for my new(er) one and it arrived this morning (way too early, thanks post man).  Carpe Diem.  Swallow Hard.  Let's do this.  I went with the intention of asking people's permission (which I appreciate isn't street photography, it's street portraiture - but hey what are you going to do?).  I asked four people.  Two said yes and two said no.  One of the nos I turned into a yes with some chat.
