So here we go with another two - enjoy
I like both of these shots.

Candid moments, people who could easily be you or I...

Now I want to thank all of you guys (and gals, of course ) for taking a look at my first street shots, thank you for commenting them and sharing your opinion - you folks are a great help!!

And please don't hesitate to tell me what you think about the last two photos, even if it's really bad
I really like the first one. Excellent street shot.

It seems to me, that the best Street Photography is where you capture the human condition. The silliness, the compassion, the pain, the laughter and the tears; the things that not just our targets are subject to, but what all of us are subject to. That they are a mirror in which our photographs reflect ourselves.

Some of the books of photographs that I've seen, are portraits of my own condition.

While not strictly true, Mark Twain once remarked to the effect, (not an exact quote) "That all I have to do is look into my own soul to see all of humanity."

The House By The Side Of The Road
by Sam Walter Foss

Let me live in my house
by the side of the road
It's here the race of men go by,

They are good, they are bad,
they are weak, they are strong


Then why should I sit in the
scorners seat,
Or hurl the critics ban?
Let me live in my house by
the side of the road
And be a friend to man.

Interesting thoughts about street photography - I'll keep that in mind when I go out next time!

I like the grain of these shots. It gives them a classic touch.

I too love the grainy vintage look to them. These are pretty good. I like the first three. They look intense. Photography is suppose to be fun and they look like they are in pain lol....

Glad you like this look too, because I love it! Street shots with this b&w, old, grainy, vintage look are the ones I prefer to see... I'm not sure if these would have worked in color?

#7 Dreaming of better days... I think is your title... this is my favorite picture out of all your series right now. Like mentioned before, this picture has a moment wrapped up inside of it, keep it up nice shot (I like the others as well but this one is def. my fav.).

# 10 in the photographer seris is a close second, his facial expression, eyes and even the peculiar hand formation make this a very interesting shot, very nice, I like the PP too.
