I'm not much of a street photographer - too afraid to ask people if I can take their photo. But I spent Sunday along the waterfront in Lausanne and managed to grab a couple of shots I couldn't resist sharing.
It was a beautiful day, perfect temperature and it felt as if half the city had the same idea I had and were hanging out along the water too. Lausanne (and much of Switzerland) shuts down on Sundays. The shops are all closed, with the exception of a cafe or two, and people just rest. Even public transport cuts down to the bare minimum. I think I could kind of get into that lifestyle, and I may follow their example the rest of my trip, work M-F, play Saturday and relax on Sunday.
How do you feel about street photography? Are you brave enough to walk up and ask someone if you can take their photo? Or do you just attempt the "shoot from the hip" method?
I have been on a Ryan Bingham kick for the past couple of weeks. I just can't seem to get enough of his gravelly voice.
