Street photographs are mirror images of society, displaying "unmanipulated" scenes, with usually unaware subjects.

    I love this shot of yours. It could have come from Saul Leiter. http://www.roughsidemag.com/saul-leiter/

    I also love seeing influence, or ‘resonance’, between photographers I admire, and earlier photographers. Perhaps we can call this ‘retrospective influence’. Its also a pleasure in ones own work.

    To see such a photograph, as yours above when you took it, has to be subconscious at the time of its taking - but later its an additional pleasure to see it having a 'conversation' with earlier photographs and photographers.

    What do you think?

      Yes. you are not the first person to say that this shoot looks as if it was Leiter's photo. I think in the time this shot was made I was aware of Leiter's work, so there is certainly some his influence. I think it's inevitable - while finding your own way of seeing and shooting, you find from time to time works of some great masters that impress you, and after looking at their work your own look changes, you just absorb their approach and then assimilate it. I think it works not only in my case, this is an universal rule.
