Default June Challenge - Word on the Street

I tried to do a search to see if/when this topic came up but I was getting a database error...

Since I won last month with a street photo and street is quickly becoming some of my favorite photography...I want to see your best street work!

Standard rules apply.

(some one please let me know if this has been done recently and I'll switch it up!)

I don't remember a street challenge and like the idea a lot.

Congratulations on a very well-deserved win. Thanks for the new challenge - although it will be tough for me as I won't be on many streets for the next month... Looking forward to seeing some street photography though.

Doesn't specify people. Any "street" will do?

According to wiki:

"Street photography is an art photography that features the human condition within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment."

So I'd say the "human condition" part is more important than the "street" part.

Don't all jump at once!

I'll get things started:

Know it doesn't meet the requirements-but my best "street shot" ever.

Default Walking the dogs

I haven't done any street photography to speak of. I caught this lady walking her dogs I hope this counts.

Streets could be paths full of hikers
