A genre in itself, street and journalistic photography embrace many disciplines.
- Candid shots, street portraits, newsworthy editorials or just the raw nature of the human experience.

Interesting that I was slightly disappointed in Minnie's Street shot with the girl on the bike because she was not looking at us. Here I think the fact that the person is walking away and not toward us gives the photo a slightly forlorn feeling. The fact that it is night time amplifies this feeling.

Erich, as discussed earlier, there was a definite forlorn feeling watching this person, who I suspect was homeless, walking along, alone on a darkened street, selectively illuminated by the lights of the city. Thanks for taking a look and joining the conversation.

I like this image, for all the right reasons of course, like the composition, mood, processing, tension, etc. but I also like for all the small stories it holds. Crop it the bottom of the top square and it's moodier, crop from the bottom up and it changes it even more. There are so many stories here and they're all important!

I have to ask, is there a bit of vertical banding on the left? S-
