    Ken, it worked well. The first one's good, but the second one, "Looking", is excellent.

    Thanks, I really appreciate that.

    I don't have a problem approaching someone and directly asking. But although asking is polite, sometimes when you ask you lose the entire reason to make the photograph in the first place. Asking the group of individuals in #2 to artificially pose as you see them would have been a disaster.

    Olympus XA held down at arm's length in my right hand. Been working on this this Fall, with mostly fails but I'm getting better.

    I try 'shooting from the Hip' when out and have some success -- I used my 1966 Carl Zeiss Werramatic loaded with outdated Agfa 200 film rated at 100 ASA for this and did a 16x12" Competition print for my Club but the judge said it was 'not straight' -- but I LIKE it still!
