Capturing people is one of my favourite things. The emotions, moments happening in all different places. This is a collection of pictures i made the past couple of months with my k5.

What a wonderful series, every single image has a story. Thank you for posting them. Did you shoot them in B/W or converted in PP?

Jeroen, the last one and the one with the running child are a notch above the rest. Really wonderful photography!

These are the kind of street shots that I wish I could do - I just ain't got the talent, but I'm glad you do. Great series, for sure.

I'd like to thank you all for the comments. I really appreciate that you take time to look at my photos.

Here is one more continuing the series. This men is an old theatre veteran where i work as a dancer. He still does character roles at over 70 years of age. (not to mention still loves to flirt with the young ballerinas)
He's character really intrigues me so recently i asked him for a quick capture.

An excellent portrait as well. All the shots are full of character. What lens do you use?

I think all of them were taken with the prime 40 2.8. Except for the sometimes limiting close up range a lens i absolutely love so far!

For some reason, I thought I commended on this image but I think I forgot.
Anyways, for what it's worth, I think these are wonderful image(great use of BW)!
The child running around the corner looks like something I'd expect to see from a well seasoned photographer. And by that I don't mean some street shooter either. I mean the kind that publishes the kind of book we end-up buying that book store.
