I've looked at the You Tube pictures referred to, and unless I'm missing something, I fail to see anything in these "street pictures". Certainly if you look at the Henri Cartier-Bresson pictures on the same site, they are a world away in terms of style and quality.

Perhaps the problem is there just is not that much "street life" anymore. In our consumer orientated society, the streets have become "sanitised"...the "characters" long since departed. People exist in their "telly dominated" world of soap operas and stupid quiz shows. When they do venture out, it's straight into the BMW parked on the driveway.....

I believe it's called progress.....
