Candid Street Portraits

While waiting for a friend at Pioneer Square, I took a walk around the streets near the square and shot street candids. Using only my super wide lens (17-40mm) I shot from my hip letting my camera hang from the neck strap at my waist. Most of the people I passed didn't even notice I had a camera on me, which made for the all natural candid moments. In the past, when I would do some street photography, I used a telephoto lens most of the time, "sniping" people from far away. Using my wide lens made for a different effect which I am very pleased with.
