What a great testament to the philosophy of controlling your "palette" by utilizing one great lens for so many intriguing and memorable shots! I remember years ago in college, a great art professor stressed to me the importance of not loading two many colors onto my palette... it would confuse the creative process, while mixing with fewer primary colors would free up the process.
One question about some of the subjects with whom you were able to approach so closely; did you need to ask permission for those shots, or were you sometimes able to get them surreptitiously? That is something that keeps me from getting some desirable shots at times.
Birdbrooks, for the subjects that are in the pics, I never asked I pretty much shot from the hip. This way their attention is never taken away from their activity and the shot looks natural.
hope that made sense.
Oh, and I agree about having too many colors on the palette. I took 3 lenses but early on the trip I decided to concentrate on just shooting with the 24 and believe it or not it was the most fun I've had shooting on a trip.
