Mobile Photography – StreetWise – Eighth Challenge – ‘People Working in the Street’


Hello Everyone!

The theme of our next challenge is ‘People Working in the Street’

The question is not what you look at, but what you see” Henry Thoreau.

This is a popular theme and for good reason — people are at work everywhere on the street.

In our daily lives, we see folks in uniforms working for local municipalities on the street, such as policemen and women, traffic officers, school crossing guards, street cleaners to name just a few. Others sell things on the street from clothing and accessories to fruits and veggies, books, or anything at all. People work in ways that can be seen from the street, in a storefront window or a newspaper stand. Nowadays, the food truck or cart is ubiquitous and one can find people at work selling all sorts of delicious things to eat  the ice cream truck is a favorite! Still, others are musicians, singers, or some kind of performers working their magic on the street.

The streets are filled with people who, in one form or another, are doing a job. We thought it would be interesting to capture and incorporate people who work in the street into photographs for this challenge, and the options are wonderful and endless!

We are very excited to view your submissions each month and look forward to curating your photographs for this next ‘People working in the Street’ showcase.
