Took my third picture of a busker under the bridge at lunchtime. He drives up from London for a couple of hours playing. There are limits on how long you can play, how much (if any amplification), etc.
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.
