Those of you who follow my blog know that I have a passion for Street Photography. It is, in my opinion, a very natural and honest form of Documentary Photo Journalism. Taking pictures of people without their knowledge is of course a delicate matter and requires some sensibility. A genuine street photographer doesn't aim to offend people nor does he try to insult them. He's not a Paparazzo. He is a silent and sympathetic observer of urban life, capturing the reality in front of him.
The "Streets Of D.C." images shows the "working class" in Downtown, D.C., in the fall of 2012. All pictures were shot between the Corcoran Gallery (near the White House), and the Germany Embassy on M Street. Most of the people I encountered were busy, rushing the streets, carrying their lunch bags, making phone calls. Stereotypes of those who work on K, L and M street? You decide.
