People in Chinatown

P1230177

People make the most interesting photographs. However, it’s impolite, and maybe even unethical, to photograph people without their permission.

P1230180

 

 

 

 

 

Famous photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Walker Evans  have no qualms about this sort of photography. Nor do serious photojournalists.

P1230178Legally speaking, people in public places have no reasonable expectation of privacy- it’s legal to photograph them.

 

P1230207

Lots of local photographers, like Troy Holden and the folks at the All City photoblog, take pictures like this. I guess their blogs would be a lot less interesting without them.

P1230202So I have put them here. But still, in the back of my mind, there is just a little bit of uneasiness.

Biking on the new Bay Bridge Span

November 24, 2013
P1230073The new suspension span makes the old cantilever section look totally frumpy.
P1230058The bike/pedestrian path is really nice. Wide and gradually sloping, everyone on it seemed to be having a great time.
P1230088The California Highway Patrol keeps order on the bikepath, on their bicycles. Nice duty if you can get it.
P1230086A different type of CHP cruiser.
P1230091Dramatic tower is dramatic.
