This is a shot of a living statue street performer, she was stood on platform about 5ft high and she remained still till someone put some money in her tin and then she curtsied. I took the shot with my 70-300 @ 300mm to blur out the background.

Looks great in monochrome!

Thanks Paul, there wasn't much colour in the original shot so I converted to BW.

I don't get to do it often enough, but I love street photography and it's double fun because I get to do it in New Orleans, ie, the French Quarter.  One of my best selling prints is my avatar.  I just did a print of this shot in color and on Red River's Pearl Metallic.  It is quite dramatic.  Typically, red is not an easy color to get printed properly, but with this metallic paper, it jumps out at you.

 

Over on DPReview, there's always heated discussions about street photography with people like me that find it a great part of photography and those that believe you're invading someone's privacy.  Ummmmm....they're on a street in public.  But, I do use discretion.  I never take pictures of children unless their parents approve.  I know I'm not doing it for nefarious reasons, but others don't know that.

 

Anyway, I enjoy anyone's shots of the street scene.  It can be magical!

Without seeing the colour version..... I suspect that your choice of B&W cut down on possible distractions and brought up the detail in the subject. Given such folk are unlikely to set up in places where there not loads of folk milling around it seems they will ever be difficult to photograph...

 

Some street photography can be really interesting, I take my hat off to those skilled in the art. My street photography is usually limited to architecture or animals where people just get in the way...(-:

Very nice Chimpy and a good choice of processing.

Even the background is in keeping with the mood !

Thanks gents, glad you like it. I put a couple of euros in her tin before I started taking shots so she was happy to let me click away.

I always tip the street performers for their work when I'm shooting them.  It's only fair.
