candid street scenes


People on the street always fascinate me. I wonder where they are going, what kind of life they have,
if they are happy...
What I really like about street photography is that you'll never know what you are going to shoot before you leave the house. You'll never know which people you might meet. Which light you are going to get...
I like street photography. For it's sense of being candid, raw and pure. The picture just conveys what happens around you and I like to watch the world around me.
The picture of  Pink Scarf  holds for me that unexpectedness, that happens when you just do what you love.

See you in 9 days!

Love,
suki of sukiphotographyblog

Suki, you hit on the core of street shooting - the joy of the unexpected! People are so varied in their looks and actions. Street photography is always inspiring. Great photos!
