the street (in progress)

Just a quick additional post whilst I think of it.

As some of you might know, I'm a keen amateur photographer and really just love capturing the world around me as I see it and live it. I've been seriously looking into buying a digital camera (thanks for all the advice Ben), but at 800 quid plus, I'm going to take my time figuring out exactly what SLR I want. Still, all very exciting.

Anyway, I just wanted to link you to this fantastic flickr album by a French photographer of various homeless people living in France (primarily Paris I think). These mostly black and white portraits are really stunningly moving, displaying such honesty and intensity. I challenge you not to be moved.

Please, as ever, get interactive, let me know what you think.

Hey Stuart,

A great photo set, and a fantastic blog. Moving, indeed,

Anyway, word has gotten around to your American relatives that SeƱor Stuart has been throwin' up a few posts here and there, and that we ought to give 'em a read (actually, I found your URL on the back of a postcard you sent my mother, but don't worry... I'm spreading the word.) To that end, I'll link to your blog, assuming you have no objections, and I invite you to check out mine: Murky Words. Keep up the good work.

Your cousin,
