    Given an attention span just a tad longer than that of a hamster on crystal meth, one could scroll half way down this very forum and find.... a long and involved discussion of street photography! Fancy that.
    Also, this is supposed to be creative and individual - what do YOU want to photograph?

If you do ask first then all you get is a badly posed "Year Book" type of shot.

    Thank you. I hate that some people think they have a right to photograph me (or anyone else) just because I was so unfortunate as to have to leave my home to get a gallon of milk or mail a bill. I like photographing things, but I do not like being photographed and the idea that there may be people out there photographing me without my permission or knowledge troubles me.

    For the record, I don't shoot street photography. I just read a bit of everything for the learning.

    There's nothing I don't shoot. I'm in automatic mode when street shooting. Editing what's OK or not OK comes later, when I'm looking at the contacts. If I have to stop and ponder in the street it's often too late to shoot the moment I was thinking about shooting. It's the nature of the genre.

    As an aside, why do some of us take the time to write in a forum just to say this has already been talked about? Seems like a waste of time to me.

    Again: why?

    I am genuinely puzzled by this.

    Because someone may not be aware of that fact, and may want to read through a much more extensive thread on that topic they may not be aware of. This generally happens to newer people, and they sit and wonder why this bunch of snobs don't chime in on their topics - all the while its because they already responded at length elsewhere on the same topic.
    But I guess you can just ignore people - that'll learn 'em!
    Of course, when the thread is almost exactly two lines down from the one you started... well, then I just do it to be a smart ass. Do you mind?

    Shooting the homeless, sick ederly, and those enhanced with life struggling problems.

    These topics should be photographed, with sensitivity to the subjects and also with an ability to show a possible solution to their problems.
    It is very easy to walk in any city or countryside worldwide and find the above topics and photograph.
    What you do with the images, what advococy you bring to the causes, that is important. Injustice, poverty is worldwide, the camera can expose this.
    How you as a photographer can tell the story and bring forth some solutions is important.
    I think Salgado was not the first to photograph the displaced people of this world, but he made sure their plight was recognized.
    A casual sampling of homelessness just does not cut it today, How do you as a photographer offer something to their situation, that is what is important.
