the street shots are great Philip - but people must be much more approachable in Toronto than Sydney - you must have been standing very close to the woman with the coffee cup - and as the guy (yawning?) is looking right at you he must have been OK with having his pic taken. I never feel comfortable getting up so close to people with a cam like the D800E.
Thanks ben! People in Toronto generally are fairly approachable, and in the case of the older man (he is a local character with mental illness, often can be found in my neighbourhood), he actually came up and asked me to take his picture! The coffee cup woman I took while we were both crossing the street, and just lucked into getting a shot in focus, as I was shooting from the hip.
I find it much easier to get candids with the 105 or 180mm lenses though, as I too am usually too shy to take people's pictures up close without some indication that they know I'm going to do so already. That's why you'll tend to see my friends in pictures on here rather than strangers most of the time.
