Unfortunately, poor Robert Kapa got a little too close in the end! RIP.

Not a chance, the old Kerrowdown is both swift and light on his feet.

I wish, a complete stranger as that’s the way street photography works.

The shutter must be as quiet as the K3's to get away with being this close...candid Kerrowdown strikes again.

Often a noisy environment helps, most streets have enough of it to cover your tracks.

Me candid, my stealth technique is to be brazenly obvious and then no one ever sees you.

Love those wrinkles (in the jacket). And the line of shops extending off into the distance. The woman on the right seems skeptical of something. Is she looking at her reflection in a shop window? Lots of fun stuff here. Especially the imposing figure IN the jacket. Good sniping. Well done. Thanks.
