Street Photography Challenge #30

posted March 20th, 2017
Sorry for the delay in starting Street #30 but I didn't realise I'd won #29!

Here is a definition of street photography copied from the original Street Challenge post:

"Catching a fleeting moment WHERE THE PRIMARY SUBJECT IS PEOPLE, doing what people do, being what people are and which moves the viewer in some way. Street photography is often B&W, but not exclusively or necessarily so. Contains a human presence & element even if it is architecturally inclined. Often defined as "Unposed scenes in public places": so, no street portraiture where the subject is posing - although they may catch you & look into the camera! It does not need to be confined to overtly urban areas - could be a beach (or an airport). Avoid heavy hdr processing, spot-colouring etc..."

if you want to give it a go but find yourself wondering, “should I ask permission before shooting strangers in public places?” then the short answer is "no". but you'll find longer and more helpful answers here:

if you want to know more about street photography, here's a very helpful resource from eric kim’s blog:

if you are new to this genre, or a bit intimidated, street shots do not have to be close up, they can be silhouettes, or a person from a distance that shows the scale of the location, or an interesting background

this challenge will run from today, 20th March, until midnight gmt on Sunday 2nd April 2017. entries must be taken within these dates. I'll choose the finalists on Monday 3rd April

please tag your photos street-30

please also post your photo on this thread to keep this challenge current and to inspire others

have fun !
