Ah, community debauch is in part mine, not arguing, just that street life and its history is an attractant to me, in many forms. I'm also scared of some of it. I find Hopper's paintings stiff, but I'm glad he painted them.
The first photo that I put on, Oxford - I don't think of as street life, more as a protected bubble.
I don't mind focus being fuzzy especially in caught snaps, even snaps of pros. Fuzzy on purpose, I'm plus and minus on that. My own camera focus has changed over time with my eyes, as has that of a whole lot of other folks.
