Welcome to the showcase for our third challenge, ‘Layering’ (the use of reflections – in a building’s glass, a puddle or another shiny object.). The objective of these challenges is to help us collectively practice and perhaps learn some new techniques. Each challenge will be based either on a shooting technique or perhaps a theme. We would like Streets Ahead to be an interactive group, and for members to try to participate in the challenges.
If you are a woman street photographer, please join our growing community.
With many congratulations to Anne-Martine Parent, Annie Helmsworth, Armineh Hovanisan, Cecily Batey Caceu, Connie Rosenthal, Dani Salvadori, Donna Donato, Em Kachouro, Gina Costa, Jamie Glasser, Lee Atwell, Robin Sacknoff, Stefanie Le Pape, Tuba Korhan and Vivi Hanson Sacredote for being featured here.

An urban cityscape reflected in a window with what looks like a poster inside and some spray painted writing on the outside. The result is an intriguing image with several layers. The choice of Hipstamatic’s BlacKeys B + W film gives very subtle colour tones to the black and white image.

Here we see New York City reflected in the windows – the old buildings as well as reflections of the new construction that is happening in the area. The lines of the building seem to add another dimension to the photograph.

A glimpse of the city and a group of pedestrians are reflected in the glass, while inside, I feel a quiet moment with the man seemingly lost in his own thoughts, putting pen to paper. Floating across the image are some coffee beans, adding another texture to the overall image.
