this thread gives me hope...for a few things...the least of which is maybe we can continue this thread for awhile and see what comes of it. i like all kinds of photography just as i like all kinds of music...but some more so than others...'street' has always been my love from the day i got my first good camera and had to figure out what i wanted to shoot till today.

It is a bit disappointing that folks seem to have a hard time sticking to the OPs original suggestion...

Well, it seems from the photos posted, "street" is generally defined by photographers on the RFF as "public," more than the literal sense of being on a sidewalk or stoop.

Personally I consider the miles of underground walkways in the subways as streets I travel, have coffee while on them, and even shop.

My comment was not aimed at content so much as the number of photos per poster. The OP asked for "an image" that represents what you think "street" is.

Regarding the amount of frames shown per person posting or the choice of their frame they present?

EDIT: got it! Thanks for clarifications

Ah so true!! But still some really nice photos, so I forgive their "excessive" posting.

Taipei metro,

Your photos are stunning. Stunning. Do you offer workshops or online tutorials regarding your technique? There's a naturalistic, animal quality to them that transcends pedestrian experience. A flash of inspiration.

Folks might have a hard time sticking to the OP's suggestion because it's not possible to explain "street photography" with just one photograph!

Street photography for any one photographer can include stories, connection between camera and subject in some way (such as eye contact/recognition), decisive moments, humour, dogs, plays of light etc and sometimes combinations of any of these. I honestly can't think of a single photograph I've taken that explains street photography, all by itself. Any one photograph would be inadequate...

Perhaps the OP could have added "and why".

regards,

some good ones, many that make be ask "why".

but MOSTLY -- pictures of the homeless are too easy, they are tacky, they do not make a point, they are exploitative, THEY ARE TOO EASY. DON'T.

And here's another constructive link to today's Washington Post introduction of Indian amateur street photographer Swarat Ghosh. The one with the guy wrapped in the plastic bag is especially strong. Perhaps this level of photography is aspirational for many of us, but on occasion we should consider aspiring to more.

I did. Multiple. If you follow the links I posted you will find many pictures. Since I don't own the rights to them, I linked to them indirectly.

My own photos are mediocre. But the thread did not ask for my own photos, just photos. Two thoughtful essays, with lots of pictures, should be quite rewarding.
