Edmonton Streets in Black and White

Street photography, for me, is not an easy task.  I'm afraid of people.  That's why having a long lens makes a big difference.  With the 100-400mm zoom I can take shots from across the street, and people are none the wiser what I'm pointing my camera at.  Too bad the lens is white, and it sticks out like a sore thumb.  To my surprise, people here in Edmonton are very friendly towards photographers, and usually do not mind at all having their picture taken.  Some will actually try to "strike a pose", which is nice, but it does not go along my view of "reporter" style photos.  Here are some shots of unsuspecting people around Edmonton downtown. Enjoy. Chatting
