Street

Last week I talked about street photography.  It’s something very much on my mind so I’ve been sifting through hundreds, nay thousands of images that fall into the category.  Street photographs are the ones that unveil the candid, un-posed, slice of life moments in the human ballet.  At least that's the premise.
There seem to be two schools of thought in the wonderful world of street photography.  One involves a fly on the wall philosophy where the photographer is unseen and theoretically can capture a truly candid moment.  In the other the photographer is known to the subject and may be very engaged in the scene even to the point of choreographing the dance of life. There's one of those here.
 
 
Shy fellow that I am I fall into the former category most of the time.  Responses of my victims when I am recognized vary greatly, from hostility to a warm embrace.  In this series are examples of total disdain, of disinterest and “take my picture, please.”
My program isn't letting me post all the images I intended and I don't know if that's a glitch, operator error or a real limitation of the template.  In any event,  you're getting about half of the photographs I planned.  Is that a sigh of relief or are you just glad to hear from me ?

I absolutely love the image of the woman touching the back of her hat, and the couple hugging/kissing up the stairs. Just stunning. A nice series, Steve.

Steve,

My favorite is the young couple hugging in the Alley. Youthful innocence!
