“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.” Henri Cartier-Bresson
It is incredibly inspiring to view all of the photos submitted to our StreetWise Flickr group from around the world – from stunning night scenes, to dramatic black and whites, to captures filled with color, to photos that touch the heart. Thank you so much for participating and inspiring us with your images. Welcome, also, to those newer to our street photography community – it is great to have you join us!
As always, it was difficult for us to choose only a relatively few images from all those that were submitted.
As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines “We believe that it is important to focus on the key aspects of street photography composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment rather than relying on too much aping. We therefore feel that aping should be kept to a minimum cropping, tweaking exposure, colour, adding a grain or texture is ok but we would like to see you steer away from overly app’ed images that are more art oriented or painterly.”
We hope you will enjoy this inspiring showcase as much as Ilana and I enjoyed putting it together!
A special thank you to Joanne.
