I used to be a keen 'street' shooter with Rolleiflex cameras but have never got into it with k100D, probably because you have to put it across your face to shoot. This is about the only street shot I have made with this camera. Crudely edited with picassa and turned into a 'B/W'.

Nice shot..

It conveys just how steep that street feels in reality..

Not very good for wheelchair access...
A good B&W conversion of a candid street shot.

Nicely composed streetshot and good sense of narrative and motion/time, it shows where they have come from, where they are and where they might be going. I'm feeling that they will walk down that alley way (if they make it to the bottom of the slope that is).

Terrific capture of a kinetic moment. I'm glad they've got rubber sole shoes on.

Sailor,..thanks for your nice comment, yes it's an interesting spot with lots of steep weird nooks and crannies.

This shot has a sense of history to it,with the old stone walkways,shop front with the chalkboards.And by making the image B&W adds to the feel of the moment.Nice work
