W/NW - Shots taken on the street

Not in a backyard, not at the pool,
not at a stadium or in a school.

Not indoors, not at the lake.
Not on a boat, not on a plane.

Not at the park, not on a bus.
Not at a store, much less at a pub.

Not at a café, not on a terrace,
not at a BBQ or a local fair's fairness.

Not on a goat, not on a horse,
not at the races or "simply outdoors".

Not on your bike, not in/on/at a field.
Not on or inside a moving contraption
--even if still.

Not on a train, not at the beach.
It's not "it's candid, ergo it's 'Street'".

This thread is just simply
(really quite simply) for all and any photo-
shots taken on the street.

I certainly hope no one was humiliated by the experience of being photographed in a public place!

Here are a few of mine. You can see from most of them that I have a love of moody "against the light" high contrast shots. (These look better at full res. but this will have to do.)

Both were taken with a Mamiya 6. The first one was with the 150mm lens and the second one, the 50mm lens.

Unless I missed something, NONE of the folks who posted images above identified the location where the photos were taken. I find this really interesting; the images alone are what's given importance, with no context other than the name of the thread, "Shots taken on the street." I wonder if this is because the photographers who posted believe it's all about the image (only), or "the moment" or because they want the viewer to guess, because it's enough for the images to fit with the title of the thread or for some other reason. To me PLACE is essential. Maybe not to others. Anyway, I'd like to know where some of these shots were made, just out of curiosity. But maybe the photographers wanted the locations to anonymous. Thoughts?
