A Happy Accident

There are many ways of approaching street photography. It has always been for the most part for me about composition. Once upon a time I had the idea that I wanted to become an architectural photographer. I found myself impatient about people walking into my shot. Then one day I lost my patience and started taking photos of buildings with people walking into the frame. It was a happy accident for me. I wasn't aware of street photography as a genre then. I also like to call it slow photography. When I find a composition that I like, I'll wait for people to walk into the frame. This photo was taken during a Chinatown Street Photography Workshop March 2017.
