@ggshearron suggested the following for this edition of the street challenge:

"I would like to make the challenge to be Street Portraits, where there has been at least an acknowledgement or even a discussion by/with the PERSON photographed. I want to work more on this particular kind of shooting and it will help me be more outgoing, hopefully improve my composition and camera skills. "

To be eligible the photograph must have been taken during this time frame.

More on Street Photography

Street photography is an intimidating genre for many photographers, mainly because it involves pointing your camera at strangers and taking their picture. While it is true that a photo in which eye contact is made with the subject can be very powerful it is also true that an equally powerful image can be made without the subject realizing that their photo is being taken. There is more than one way to get a good street photograph. You can use the in-your-face guerilla approach, the stealthy surreptitious approach or you could simply ask a stranger if they would mind if you took their picture. Whichever technique you use always be mindful of light and shadow and strong composition, and try to tell a story. I lifted this definition of street photography from an on-line article:

"Street photography is a visual documentation of everyday life and society. It’s commonly referred to as a candid representation of humanity, however, a person doesn’t need to be in an image for it to be considered street photography. This type of photography takes place exclusively in public areas, albeit not necessarily on the street.

Within three sentences, you might have already realized that there isn’t a clear definition of what street photography is or isn’t. And yet, once you see a street photography image it’s just so clear that it couldn’t be classified as anything else. As Bruce Gilden once said, “If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, it's a street photograph.”
