"If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough," - Robert Capa

But while his photographs are worthy, I would not advise follwing in his footsteps.

Larry Towell of Magnum suggested that the quote is often misunderstood. Not only does the getting closer line mean being close with a short lens, it also means getting closer emotionally, risking more than your butt, you should also risk your humanity.

I'll shoot anything when doing street. People whatever their plight might be. That's the nature of street photography.

Kids, homeless, mentally ill. Vancouver is awful for people exploiting the homeless with photography. Apparently it's art to take pitures of the down and out and sell it for big $.

And just who is it that is paying those big $ for photos of the homeless?

The nouveau riche that Vancouver is filled with.
