Ever since I bought my Fuji X cameras, my street photos have been accumulating fast. So I have decided to select three shots from my "Street" file to post on a weekly basis.
Shooting "Street" has become an addiction... I mean, a daily hobby, that I've come to enjoy:) I did not shoot these photographs for any commercial purpose or reason, but just for the sheer enjoyment of capturing life as it unfolds around me. I am sharing this with you to spread the love!
