  • A try at street photography

    This is what is meant by street photography isn't it?


    This is a drain cover I shot in Riga what do you think.

    I think it's a beautiful iconic image, Alf - looks much like a postmark. Very pleasing.

      Graphically very strong and terrific texture. I suppose this is true street photography, what we normally label street photography is really "people photography."

            Now that is truly Street photography, Alf, I love the really warm tones you have captured.
            The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

              Street photography for sure and a candid to boot - the drain cover looks to be totally unaware that it is being photographed!

              I very much like the colours and texture.

                  Have to agree, first impressions are warm tones, post mark, Aztec. Is that your leg creating a shadow? If so, football!! I know that's a little random. Its a fab shot that certainly makes you think..

                      Nice image Alf, like the way you've captured the texture within this image, skilfully done.

                        Thanks for the comments guys.
                        There is a lot of PP in this to bring out the texture and colours in the shot.
