    You'd have been hard pressed to present a better example of Frank's work. I suspect that you, Richard, have drawn inspiration from him in your development as a street shooter.

    If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Yes, of course. Not only directly from him, but from the many great street photographers he inspired.
