Leeds: Thanks, Mr Evans

Although I'm relatively new to street photography (the awkward moment when you approach someone: "hi, your cool- can I take your picture?") i've been following it for a while and I came across this quote by photographer Walker Evans:

"Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long."

So in a none creepy way, I've been staring, particularly on my way to my 9am lectures and I realised that asides from the token 'still drunk, last nights make up and uggs' get up sported by some, people on campus actually dress pretty well. Hopefully soon I can put my camera where my mouth is so to speak and get some good shots.
