Shooting from the hip

Yesterday I took some time just to walk around and shoot random street scenes. I was following a request of another student on my course, 'go take one street picture' - so well I did and photographed in this fashion:

I held the camera to my side, strap wrapped around my hand. Set the lens to 24mm and the aperture to f.2.8 and tilted it slightly upwards. These are the results of my final edit, it's important to note that they have not been cropped or colours adjusted. If anything it just provides a break from using the viewfinder, and stretch a creative outlook. The only image which was composed with the viewfinder is the last, the rest from the hip!
