Observations from a non-GR guy
I visit this thread often, my favorite on RFF.
You GR shooters are adept at finding beauty and / or meaning from the seemingly mundane and meaningless.
Most of you exhibit a "good eye" but it goes beyond that.
The 28mm FOV is a difficult one, usually capturing a complex number of ancillary subjects , shapes and lines...
Most photographs I see made with the 28 need cropping as the photographer is too far away and the "extras" are either irrelevant or actually detrimental.
Not so here!...almost all the photos are well composed corner to corner, no easy task when combined with the "on the fly" nature of small camera and street.
Thanks for the inspiration!
