I'm James Noble from Orange County, California USA. In 2009 I fell in love with photography. l love to take candid pictures of interesting strangers in interesting settings. I've never taken a class or read a photography book. I find inspiration from travel, photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson, André Kertész, Willy Ronis, photos by talented street photographers on Flickr and 500PX, and watching Italian Neorealism films.
I love walking the streets and alleys in French and Italian cities with my camera and/or smartphone during the late fall or winter months. Street photography is like an elixir that helps to distract me from my chronic back pain because my mind is busy looking for the next shot.
