Taxi in motion

I attempted some more street photography tonight. I had some time to spare after my workout, so I went to the Market Square in the centre of town as the Christmas lights were switched on this evening. On the way I took a few snaps of my walk, including this shot of a taxi turning a corner.

I took this with my Canon S90. It's inconspicuous, has manual settings, a lens that allows you to shoot at a wide aperture of f/2 and it shoots in RAW. Simply put, it's perfect for street photography.

There was a small fair in the market square. I took a few pictures of it that I liked and I almost chose one of them for my picture of the day; however after converting my street shots into black and white and giving them that gritty feel, I liked the way this and a few of the others turned out. I think I'm going to enjoy doing street photography at night over the coming months.

Canon S90, f/2, 1/20, ISO-400

for a point and shoot, pretty sweet mate, the fact there is no direct focus sort of works.

shooting from the hip certainly worked for this shot. Love the blur of the car
