When I have a camera in my hand, I know no fearAlfred Eisenstaedt
I’m not sure all of us who take photos feel the same as Eisenstaedt, but it does seem that holding a camera gives a lot of people a sense of freedom. They appear more relaxed, less constrained by their surroundings. So what a great opportunity that is for the rest of us who are also carrying a camera with an eye to some street photography!
I’ll start this contribution to Cee’s Capturing the Photographer challenge with a few from my archives, including the featured image. This is an alternative edit of the one in my recent Friendly Friday challenge post about the use of frames in photography. It was too appropriate for this theme not to include it again!
The archive shots are followed by a couple taken especially for this challenge, at the London Stands With Ukraine march this weekend.

When Virtual Tourist members get together, cameras are constantly in action, so I’ll finish with a gallery of some of my friends at various meetings over the years.
