Everything you just described is, as you said, “People going about their business.” I can’t really comment on your work, but I suspect that if you compare the shots that you made using your methodology the other day to the work of Mermelstein Gilden, or Winogrand your images will be clinical in comparison. Why? Because they are so driven to capture the “heart” of their subjects that they overcome a natural human fear as a matter of course. The willingness to expose yourself is a minimum requirement of good street photography.
