Answer : Well, except for a a few details, 1, 3 and 5 are definitely outfits you could see me with in the street. While 2 and 4 would need quite a few bottles of wine before, but you never know. Morale of this post : it doesn’t matter how you dress as a street photographer, no need to look like a black ninja to hit the street. Stay cool, act normal and enjoy !
