Russ, Rabanito: no, at the end of my first paragraph I did mention books as being right/appropriate for street shooting work.

I also note that my post was later edited, but not that part.

That the second paragraph, wider in scope than just street, doesn't mention books specifically doesn't imply I am not in agreement with what the two of you say about books: I have such books in my collection, so I did put money where my mouth is.

Right, Rob. Now I see it at the end of the first paragraph: ". . .galleries and books." My apologies. Guess I jumped it to get to the second paragraph. I'm inclined to prefer photographs, both B&W and color, in books. Sitting at a computer to appreciate pictures is too tedious. Visiting galleries is too much hassle. I even put my own best photographs in comb-bound books. I'm up to volume XXVIII with Florida pictures.

There are streetpictures I would like on my wall, because they can be a reminder of what it means to struggle through life. If I had the dough, I'd also consider purchasing "for the love of god". Not that I think Damien is the man to beat, but that piece would remind you very succinctly of the usefulness of blindly chasing riches.

I still firmly believe that Rob's "The driver" should be printed larger than life and hung in the hallway at Tesla as a constant reminder that people are not machines, and machines are not people, despite any advances in AI. In that respect in signifies a bigger message for me in todays systemic era.

Similarly, HCB's behind the gare, can also be thought of as a jump into the deep, into the unknown. That could be a constant reminder that for each of us what the future holds is uncertain, and therefore we jump into the unknown every single day. One look at that image each morning makes you realise you might as well start doing whatever it is you wanted to do so badly, because the outcome will always be uncertain and thus perhaps the outcome is not as relevant in life as starting the actual journey.

Right, Oscar. I have several 17 x 22 street pictures on my walls. They're my own, and they remind me of things I like to remember.

Sorry Rob. My fault.
In the back of my mind I thought we all agreed.
Call it laziness ... :(

Thanks, Oscar; it's not every day that somebody remembers a particular picture of mine! Makes me feel vindicated, in a sort of happy way.

My aging memory apparently is no match for Oscarís, so can we see that picture again, here, please?

That would have been some technically brilliant selfie!

The bandana has been consigned to history. My better half made it for me from some left-over material from something she'd made for the apartment. Sadly, wear and tear has rendered it frayed and reduced to one ragged thickness at the front, and the dire effects of radiation and my battles to fight off further facial surgery have convinced me that I'm better off with something that includes a shade for the eyes, about which I already have concerns...

That is indeed a memorable image, Rob.
One of many of yours.

Eric, Russ, thank you. That said, I know myself to miss many that I can't forget. I was walking across a local street intersection a few months ago during one of my daughter's trips out here to see if I'm okay, and a convertible stopped to let people pass. In the passenger seat was a lady with an eye-watering cleavage complete with independent suspension. I moaned to my daughter about how unprepared I have become in my photographic life, and all she could remark was that it wasn't the right thing to do, and that I could get punched for paying attention when attention is so obviously sought.

I never will understand the world post the year 2000.

Nicely and succinctly put, as always, Rob.
