Hard At Work - Downtown Nassau

I'm always trying to improve at "street photography". I find it really hard to do well, and opportunities for practice are somewhat limited since I live in a mostly rural area.

But I had a unique opportunity just a week ago, on vacation in the warm, friendly Bahamas - in the touristy downtown area of Nassau, close to the cruise ship dock, Senor Frogs and the Straw Market.

I used my Oly OM-D E-M5 camera for these photos. The smaller size of the camera makes me less conscious of taking photos of strangers on the street. But after I downloaded the photos from the memory card, I immediately wished I had taken more photos. That's something I'll keep in mind the next time I venture out (not that I'll be in the Bahamas any time soon - that would be wishful thinking....)

Linked to Sweet Shot Tuesday with Kent Weakley.

Finally, I want to thank Nancy at A Rural Journal for her Valentine's Day Boost Your Blog Party. If you are visiting from that link up, thank you!

Got some very nice shots! Street photography is a little daunting at times. I usually tell people I am in a photography class... do they mind a shot or two. sometimes though just use a telephoto...and o one is the wiser. These are very good though

These are wonderful candid shots, Shirley!

I have photos from old slides that my parents took in 1968 when they visited that same straw market... one of the places I still wish to visit. Great shot, Shirley!
