Taking it to the streets

I snapped this picture at around 8am on Saturday morning after I walked out of the Smith/9th St Station on the F line in Brooklyn. I've recently felt very inspired by the more modern street photographers. The work of Brassai and Bresson always impressed me, although I find today's street photography more interesting. Talking with Jamel Shabazz, last Wednesday night at a street art seminar, really peaked my interest in the street and street life as subject matter.

I spent a couple of hours in the Bronx Museum yesterday admiring the work shown in their exhibit: Street Art Street Life; from the 1950s to Now. I highly recommend you check it out!
