    maybe shoot people doing nothing can be interesting...

    that's how most kitty or doggy pics are anyway...

    as with all people shoots, sometimes best ask permission to shoot b4 you actually do yah?..

    some folks dun take too kindly to being shot... or shoot people-related stuff? kinda prefer my first (lame) idea though. haa...

    true.. do you think if i were to walk down chinatown i might come home with a few good shots? chinatown seems pretty busy and ideal for people shots.or should i try lil' india?

    shoot people at bus-stop for originality. those sitting, standing, looking at bus info...

    if got long zoom, shoot close-up of their tired faces? yah, like zoom from across the street for stealth. could even end up with a catchy title for a photo story.

    both seem equally colorful to me, but worth exploring the camera friendly part...

    i mean the people there

    in little india just smile and take photos, don't need to be shy
    they might even pose for you.

    in chinatown you just might get scolding

    that's interesting to shoot too...

    a busy bus-stop may yield interesting pics too!

    People are the most interesting subjects to shoot, even when they themselves are boring people.

    nice and beautiful people are only for practicing shooting ..... the really nice images that you will want to keep and see will be those "not so nice or beautiful" people .... trust me....

    something like these ...
