It's time for Street 38!

posted October 28th, 2017
Thank you to everyone who participated in Street-37, and special thanks to @domenicododaro who hosted the challenge and went through the trouble of two finals!

Now it's time to get out on the streets for round 38!

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 Saturday, October 28th until Saturday, November 11.. all entries must be taken within these dates.
Halloween falls in between and it should therefore be easy to photograph funny, horrible, surprising or even moving scenes for this challenge.

Please tag your photos street-38

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

Looking forward to seeing what you'll come up with!

Indifference in passing

In large cities, we move about or rest in anonymity; avert our gaze from others and indifferent to what we cannot see.
