Small town challenges.

Living in a small town presents a challenge for street photography. Unlike urban centers, it seems like people on the street in a small town pay more attention to someone walking around taking pictures. Is this something you have experienced also or is it simply me over thinking it? 

   What are your experiences with small town street photography?

Yeah, I have had the same experience in my home town. I am met with more suspicious looks from people because (I guess) in their mind there isnt really anything to photograph here. There arent any turists here, so I cant act like one. Also just by walking a few walks, people already know who I am. And they talk to each other, so so long being candid.
I also have similar experience shooting during winter time. People are way more caucious and alert.
I therefore go visit other towns and places.

My town is population 902. so I have to go to a larger city with population of about 150,000 that’s about an hour drive.

this is the best I can come up with that’s a1/4 mile from my home.

Lorey, I really like this picture! The lines, the truck and pedestrian heading in opposite directions, it all comes together very nicely to me.

I once was taking photos of myself with a shoot through umbrella and my neighbors called the cops. For no reason at all.
