Fisherman or Hunter

On the recent ‘Driven to Abstraction’ day with Steve Gosling, he spoke about Street Photography, and asked us to consider whether we are Fishermen or Hunters.

Occasionally you will be walking and spot a really interesting person, now do you then follow that person and wait for the background to develop before you take the shot?Steep Hill Walk

Or are you a fisherman, you find the scene and wait for a suitable person to walk by?

For myself I am a fisherman, I have a number of locations in the Bailgate area of Lincoln and I wait for the scene to develop.  There is one shot in particular I am after, and I have been trying now for a number of years with out success, but I will keep trying.
