Today is the day. You are finally going to do it. You are finally going to be a real street photographer. You’ve loaded up your grandad’s Leica, you finally bought that battery for that Canon AE-1 that has been sitting on your shelf for so long. You are going to drive into town and do some “street photography”.
You can picture it now, just like Vivian Maier before you and Cartier-Bresson before her. You are going to go out there and zone focus away. Metering? Who needs it!? Sunny 16 has your back! Or perhaps you are the new breed of street photographer. Your brand new A7RII just got here, or maybe the adapter for your Fuji X-E2 finally came in. You can’t use auto focus with that! That’s not what Cartier-Bresson would have wanted!
