More practising on willing subjects.  I'm scared to carry my camera on the streets of Bucharest in Romania. I don't know why as I have any reason to believe it will be stolen but I'm also not sure how well recieved random photographers are. Any tips?

First...this is a great picture, love the way you cropped this one and he has a very friendly face, nice job.
Second...your camera, I just think make sure to have it carried underneath you clothing, wear a t-shirt and a shirt over it, I normally do, and than never ever let go of it, always have it with the belt around the neck..and have just an 'air' of....anybody who wants to touch...that will be the last you do...buster...tonguetongue
E Etomi: Thanks a lot Astrid. I think I'll only carry it around when I have a companion. It makes life easier.
One of your best portrait shots grin
E Etomi: Thanks Suby and hopefully many more to go.

Nice lighting and toning in this portrait. Good job! As for street photography, a telephoto zoom lens helps. Otherwise, I always pretend I'm taking a photo of some building or other and sneak a shot at my real subject. Good luck.
E Etomi: Well I'm saving up. They don't come cheap smile. Thanks Affi.
This is a great image, really like it. I hear you about street photography...see so many shots every day in Lagos but I dare not!
