Before I went to work for newspapers I used to want to sneak photos -- Yes, I 
too, wanted to be a street photographer -- but, speaking for myself only, I 
soon realized that the reason I wanted to catch that fleeting moment ala HCB 
was because I didn't want to have to walk up to that person and talk to them. 
I assume that if others felt that way then others do too.
