Seriously nice shots. #3 is amazing especially coming from a 35. I wonder how you do that, you're so close that it cant have been a silent moment.
Well, thanks Frank! But you've been pretty close as well with your 28 so this can't be all that foreign to you.
Very few of my photos are 'silent/candid'. I actually feel guilty when I don't give the subject at least a chance to see me. It's not a moral consideration at all, it's a consideration I feel I must do to push myself. Without the excitement it wouldn't be any fun (for me). This is also why the lenses have gotten shorter over the years, I started street using a 180mm lens then a 85, then 50, 35, 28 and even 21! Now, getting close is no longer the problem (or not _that_ much of a problem), being far enough back is though, as people don't tend to notice you if you're 0,5-1m away, but they do notice you if you're 2m away and are taking your time composing the shot! So, for now, I'm back in the 35mm region.
Also being to close has had a detrimental effect on my photography; I lose context.
