I'll try to read "Poetry". But I might try looking for one that is guided by a modern author.
It's not what you think...

He writes to describe the theory of poetics, which includes art in all its forms. On the other hand there must be thousands of books on street photography...

Oh, OK, thanks, Dave. I remember walking out of the Met one time so impressed by the ancient Greeks that I thought they rocked and were out of this world -- literally. They must have flown in, dwelled for a little, then flew back home to their more advanced planet.

I'll remember Aristotle's "Theory of Poetics" and may pick it up one day.

I was looking at the color version of the first photo earlier and thought it might interest you (and Dave -- hi, Dave) as much if not more because the three pedestrians' black clothing contrasted a lot more with the mostly lightly-colored background.

Thanks for the compliments!

This is a very high contrast shot, and works much better in B&W. For color, the contrast is too high.
