Hammering Down

Location: PDX Streets

Technique: Panning


This is a departure from the stream of macro shots I have been posting lately -- trying street photography this time.


I've always been somewhat hesitant to take pictures of random people without asking for permission. There's always the "this might end up bad" scenarios in the back of my head. When I spotted this roadie (biker slang -- not sure how appropriate) I thought it might be okay. He didn't seem to look bad ass or somebody who would beat me up for taking pictures of him! *LOL* I thought to myself: he's probably just an office worker trying to get from point A to point B, so I took a snap. To my relief, nothing bad happened. There probably was no reason for my paranoia -- he probably didn't even see me.



Please avoid posting icons and images in the comments. Any constructive criticism is welcome. Thanks! :)
