anyway, I rarely or very seldom take pictures of strangers unless they have something that catches my eyes. So I'm not sure what you're trying to get at.

Because I want to, because I can, because I like to.

i see.... i think i get what you're driving at.

I'll say that I'll just want something to document this frame of time where I am at, at this very place I'm standing, people wear, this and did that. later on just 5-10years down the road looking at it again will give you some smiles to yourself "that was fashionable then? man..." :bsmilie:

I think you are refering to why do people take street or/and candid photography.

Street candids of strangers ... rarely, but do it when I am travelling. I found it the most intimate way to record experiences from a trip.
