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.

Rolleiflex Automat IV - 75mm f/3.5 Xenar / Kodak T-Max 400 in Diafine
evil dSLR + Tamron 28-75 f/2.8
Leica M8 + 50mm f/1.4 Summilux pre-asph E46
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.)
