hey are some photo books to check out, they come to mind when looking at your photos.
Robert Doisneau - Paris
Alfred Stieglitz
Elliott Erwin - Snaps.
I don't know if it is because alot of them are SLC but I like the photos, nice light on the bus station shot.
Stuff that is initially thought of as boring is what fills the pages of well read photo books, buildings, business people, etc. Good stuff man.

Thanks, Mike that means a lot coming from such a wonderful photographer as yourself.

I'll take a look at those photographers, I know a little of Stieglitz (in fact I just borrowed from the main library a documentary about him) but know nothing of Doisneau or Erwin.
