Streetlife for a mere observer?

2

I can’t help it! I don’t take many pictures with people in it! To me, that has to do with integrity! Private stuff, with recognizable persons, and off course members of my own family, I keep to my self.
I admire those of you who actually take these kinds of pictures, and do it very well! But for myself, pointing with my camera towards a stranger – I just can’t!

Nowadays, while looking in my files, I see so much that rather reminds me of Edward Hopper. I have never thought of that before. There is distance and emptiness in many of my pictures. Not in all of them thank God!
I don’t know… does that mean something?

Am I – perhaps – no mere than a distant observer?
