"The Photographer's 'second sight' does not consist in 'seeing' but in being there."

-- Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida

"If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, it's a street photograph."

-- Bruce Gilden

I love the variety and visual eloquence of the street.

Flickr has brought many astounding photographers and photographs to my attention. I try to comment often on other people's shots, and very much appreciate comments on my own. Constructive, technical suggestions are always welcome.

Thanks for looking.
