I shot these with 40mm EFL (Panasonic 20mm f/1.7) just after shooting with the Lumix G 25mm so I still had 50mm EFL feet! Again, taken with Agfa Vista 200 simlulation.

Such a lot of expressions captured on this one. I was told that people in India generally do not mind street photographers and many actually want to stare at the lens.
I hadn’t heard that before and I was glad to be leaving as the family didn’t look too happy. However my own experience is that they often hassle you for money and a rupee generally satisfies them, but one needs to pass the money discretely to avoid being swamped by children with their hands outstretched.

Good to know and thanks for sharing your experience. I have heard such from a few local photographers who visited India but then I remember they did their photowalks with a well-known street photographer there, so that may have made a difference.

When I saw these guys sitting in this nicely lit area looking like their were fully engaged in their conversation, I made a couple of passes to get a photo. The first pass failed since I had inadvertently bumped my exp. comp. dial from the "C" position so it was grossly under-exposing the shot. We need more outdoor accommodations like this to encourage people to spend time and relax on the streets.

35 equiv has been my go-to field of view for the past years' street shooting but there are certain situations that require something longer. So in addition to my X100V which handles 95%+ of my street shooting, I'll still carry a GX9 with either the P12-60 or P35-100/2.8 in my sling bag. The 35-100 came in handy on the weekend when I wanted to juxtapose people against this tree's shadow. If I tried to shoot it while on the same side of the street, I would have required a much wider FoV which would have weakened the juxtaposition of passersby and the shadow. So the best solution was to shoot from across the street and the 35-100 let me do that.

A few days prior to taking this photo, I read an article that described a simple test to see if your marriage might be headed for trouble. The test was to point to something and express interest in it, and then see if your spouse looks at it or not. Fortunately, the husband was looking up just seconds before I took this photo.
