Photographing strangers is an extension of people watching. One wonders of a person’s life, their struggles and delights. However, street photography, like those of Walker Evans’ Subway Portraits or Thomas Kakareko’s iPhoneography is especially fascinating in that they manage to capture intimate, un-posed looks at individuals. While this borderlines a creepy level of observation, I find this process exciting in the relative adroitness one must use to create a snapshot. Some, shot at the hip, elicit some nervous excitement – will the picture be in focus? Did I even manage to get the person in the frame?

In any case, for the third portion of the SF Trip blogs, here are the results.
