Streets Ahead – Thirty Second Edition – Mobile Street Photography

Welcome to the 32nd edition of “Streets Ahead.” My Goodness, it’s hard to believe that we’re now in our 30’s!

It’s also hard to believe that we’re already a few months into 2014. Yep. March is now upon us. However, as I’m sitting here writing this, I have a huge smile on my face that I can’t erase. For no other reason than March is “Women’s History Month.” Personally, I think that every day should be “Woman”s Day”… but I know that ain’t happening anytime soon. I am, however, grateful that this is the month where we become conscious and aware of all the wonderful and brilliant contributions women make in our society. Not just with their labor or professional talents, but also with their artistic, spiritual, and nurturing talents. And I can promise you that as I take my camera to the streets this month, I will be focusing on all the strong and courageous girls and women who quietly move about my surroundings. And I encourage you to do the same. In fact, I propose that throughout the month of March, we fill the internet with images of “real” beautiful women… not images that focus on their physical being.

if you are a woman street photographer, please join our growing community… I’m sure that you will agree that we are a very enthusiastic and supportive group of women!!
