Dear Mr Ant
My mum says you are creepy and that your camera makes you look like a perv. Oh and Mum says that she knows about the hole in the fence.

A well crafted letter like this one would spur any Nikon owner into action, and so it has.
I hope to (before being thrown off) write a number of articles to improve ones understanding and appreciation of street photography. As difficult as it might be I also hope to make the street photographer look something better than pervy in little Jimmys eyes..
“Humpth” you say.
Well I don’t know what that means so let me continue.
Im new to street and am going to offer my thoughts and experiences no matter how immature they may seem/are. If nothing else I can at least promise you that these thoughts are freshly picked and can be either proved or disproved in the field or forum.
There will be something for everyone and topics will likely include …
Rangefinder or DSLR: should Nikon DSLRs be available in Silver?
The person in the street objects: should you make it official and get a pic.
The Law: soap on a rope and other survival tips in prison
Safety and Security: hilarious Emergency Room antics.
Raw vs Jpeg: just kidding.
Criteque: rhymes with street
Cosmopolitan Street: the different spices used in different parts of the world.
Street Gear: is there a time for Vaseline and Pantyhose.
And if you are not into street ...pffferrrtt, yea right. Then that’s OK too and so I will add a bonus item just for you.
