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.

I saw # 3 fist but didn't notice there were two others. Should have figured that. Duh! Perfect framing for a quick grab shot, if that's what it was. I presume you came upon this as it was. Dark tones convey a night on the street just right. Leading lines galore, some overt, some subtle, all working. Blacks and dark tones are delicious ;I love the dark end of the scale as you know. Just enough of the midtones to create presence in the officer, bike and wall. Nicely done. Matt

Matt,
I was at the pub across the walkway, the camera with me, as always. I watched the scene unfold. I got to a good vantage point and quickly composed and shot this. The other two were shot from my original location (no. 2) and then followed down the walkway for the third.

I'm not sure you can know pleasure without pain, and I'm sure we've all been there in one way or another. It's a sad case study on city life. Well done! S-
