TheAppWhisperer – Streets Ahead – Forty Third Edition – Women’s Mobile Street Photography Collective

Welcome to the forty third edition of “Streets Ahead,” a weekly column dedicated to women mobile street photographers. Each week we review and curate work that was submitted to our Flickr Group. In addition to creating a showcase video which features a sampling of submitted work, we also highlight a few images that caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition, and subject matter.If you are not a member of our Facebook group… we highly recommend that you join us!  This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) about Women Photographers/Artists and Street Photography, in general.

So, 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!!

‘Wet Sunday’ by Hanakai 2001

The bold compositional arrangement of this photograph echoes the rhythm of the runners pace. This lends an energy and forward energy to this interesting shot. Nice job!

‘Day 75: it never shows the truth’ by Mariza Bellini

This complex image of reflected reflections is a nice way of capturing the busy, rainy day hustle and bustle we all have experienced. A very nice capture Mariza.

‘Untitled’ by Christine Mignon

What a delightful juxtaposition of this sour old man against the steamy film poster behind him. Is he oblivious to what is behind him? Nice capture Christine!

‘Puddles on the sidewalk’ by Robin Sacknoff

While images of reflections in puddles abound in our mobile photography groups, this one is one of the best resolved and most intriguing! A well composed, well executed shot Robin.
