This is way, way, way out of my comfort zone. But this week's theme is a great opportunity to finally break out of the comfy everyday photo routine. Here's my debut. I did shoot few more today, but I think this one is the best especially with the ad in the window which I think is impossible to translate to english - "Be mobile. Be comfortable" - something like that. (Anyone wants to try translating?).
Noone killed me, noone shouted. I don't think anyone even noticed I was taking photos in the street. Nothing to fear I guess.

Satoshi T Just street debut from straight ahead. Amazing.
Paweł Kadysz Thank you. I'm glad you like it.
agnieszka bladzik you forgot about this one ;) "Vikings"
Paweł Kadysz That was a bit different. It wasn't taken in my hometown. If those Vikings got angry I could've just hop on a plane and get out of Norway ;)
agnieszka bladzik if they've got angry you most likely would not manage to the airport ;)
Jan Buchta It's a great theme but I feel the same when I'm thinking about street photo. Of course I know that people won't shoot me if I take photo on the street. I don't know actually why I'm afraid of.
Michał I feel the same. A mixture of anxiety and uncertainty of reaction. I think it should be easier in a crowded space but still I find street photography quite challenging exercise. One hint I've came across not so far ago is to slow down, stay still, just wait. If you're in a rush, taking good street photo is much more difficult.
Paweł Kadysz I'm feeling the same. And I don't think this feeling will go away even after 100 street pics. But that's the point I think. To do it anyway.
Jan Buchta Tomorrow I'm gonna try to beat this feeling and take some street photo. It's not comfy but it's always one step ahead. Today i took my camera to work but i forgot my memory card.
Ginger Anytime I try to take a street photo including strangers I feel like kinda like a thief who stole their peace, intimacy, personal space ect... And I just get too shy to take a pic...
Ian Prince I know the feeling. One way around that is to pluck up the courage and say "Hi, I'm a photographer, I'd love to take a photo of you, are you OK with that?". You'd might be surprised how most strangers say yes :) OK, maybe not "street photography" in the purest sense, but I learned a lot in my "stranger portrait" series using exactly that technique: tookapic.com/ianprince/galleri...
Ian Prince Exactly! And often doing things one is "bad" at, makes one improve what one is good at :)
Ian Prince Great to see you stepping out of your confort zone :) Surprising things happen when you do that :)
