Street Photo

Two young men and a dog. Berlin

street_photo_cmllLast mondays, I’ve posted some photos under the topic “Walking down the street”. After long meditation, I’ve decided to change the topic to a more general one “Street Photo“.
Street photography is as old as the photography itself.
“Street photography is photography that features the human condition within public places. Street photo does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. Though people usually feature directly, street photography might be absent of people and can be an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic.” Wikipedia
One important feature is that the photography must not to be prepared, the photo should be spontaneous. (This alone could lead to a broad discussion…).

Next weeks we will talk more about this interesting topic.

street_photo_cmllBehind the Window

I look out the window to see anyone…
hoping to see someone,
but there are only two women,
two women who do not pay attention to me.
They ignore me…
Nobody is going to pay attention,
nobody but myself.
I shot the photo and leave.

street_photo_cmllMondays: Walking down the street

As every Monday, we return to the theme of “walking down the street”.
This week with the title of “Shopping time”, I upload this picture of people shopping in Madrid.

People appear somewhat blurred, probably due to the rush to buy.

street_photo_cmll“I never shot on sets, but if I was traveling somewhere or on location, I would always have my camera, and I’d always be – it’s that kind of fly on the wall approach to photography, though. I don’t engage the subject. I like to sneak around, skulk about in the dark.”

street_photo_cmllMondays: Walking down the street

Starting last week this series of photographs devoted mainly to people who wander the cities, people who like to walk, needs it or want to help the environment moving around on foot.

It’s also a small homage to all who walk to be more agile, stronger and healthier, although they are in cities full of cars…or because of it..

Each monday I will continue publishing a photo on this topic. Thanks for patience…

Today three variations: the first photo is showing one of the stardard simple editing (minor retouching). The second one shows a different, a bit more creative and risky version. The third is a B&W.

I encourage you to do a small survey as usual, Which do you prefer? Why?

Location: Madrid, Puerta del Sol.

street_photo_cmllThis building was enveloped during a work by a huge picture of some models. A big announcement in fashion covering its body…

This is my contribution this week to the Weekly Photo Challenge.  I think it is another interpretation to the concept of this week “enveloped”.

street_photo_cmllI like street photography, usually in B & W, but this picture I think I had to take it and process in color.

The girl also helped with her dress in full color.

The image was taken in Madrid two days ago.

street_photo_cmllI have posted two different versions of each photo, the second is a monochrome HDR. Photos with high dynamic range give a different view of the same scene that sometimes makes them very interesting.

The images were taken in La Rambla. Barcelona

This afternoon, walking around my city I have come across this tricycle used to carry passengers on a for hire basis. It is an ecological system to explore the city. I thought it would be good idea to share.

This is the Second Post of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge.

A tricycle, often abbreviated to trike, is a three-wheeled passenger vehicle, usually carrying a single rider.
Human-powered trikes are powered by pedals or hand cranks. There are also motorized tricycles.
In the developing world, particularly Africa and Asia, tricycles tend to be used for commercial purposes: such as “pedicabs” for transport passengers, and freight trikes for making deliveries. In the West adult-sized tricycles are used primarily for recreation, shopping, and exercise.
The cycle rickshaw is a small-scale local means of transport; it is also known by a variety of other names such as bike taxi, velotaxi, pedicab, bikecab, cyclo, beca, becak, trisikad, or trishaw.
As opposed to rickshaws pulled by a person on foot, cycle rickshaws are human-powered by pedaling. Another type of rickshaw is the auto rickshaw.
They are a type of tricycle designed to carry passengers on a for hire basis. Cycle rickshaws are widely used in major cities around the world, but most commonly in cities of South, Southeast and East Asia.

This biker appeared before me yesterday afternoon and decided to shot photograph for this photo challenge.

walking Paris


The best way to visit Paris is to walk, certainly have to walk far, but only in this way we can know the heart of this amazing city. We can see the buildings, parks, meet the people who live and work there. Paris is alive, proof that a city can love the features of the contemporary world without forgetting its past.
