  1. Yes pump the tyres was the first thing I noticed. At least the undies were clean. Lots of people going places made me feel weary. The one with lots of foreground shows where she came from. The raging river was a wow. Great gallery Yvette 🙂

    1. Thanks for the detailed comment 😉
      When that biker gets air in her tires I think she will be amazed at how much better the bike rides

      Sorry if it made you a bit weary – there is a lot of actin and motion here – I feel it too when I looked again

  2. A great collection and I liked the framing and explanations of what you saw too. I think the bike rider needs the seat put up higher too, as well as air! Lots of great images from the street 🙂

    1. Hi Norah, I ask people about 40% of the time – and it is my goal to ask more – but sometimes i just go out and “shoot street shots” – if that makes sense – and I know some find it unethical – or in a gray area – and I have pondered this hobby a few times – but have resolved that it is something I want to do – and under the law we have a right to photograph people in a public place – but cannot use the photos for business – for example, a lady sued Chipotle for using her photo (without permission) in their ads:

      “Mexican fast-food restaurant chain Chipotle is being sued for $2.2 billion by a customer who claims a photo of her has been used in advertising without her consent. According to the lawsuit, photographer Steve Adams took Leah Caldwell’s photo in mid-2006 while she was dining in a Denver area Chipotle restaurant. Caldwell claims she refused to sign Adams’ release form before leaving the restaurant, but that her refusal didn’t stop Chipotle from using the photo in some promotional materials.

      Caldwell states that she became aware of the photo’s usage in Chipotle promotional materials in December 2014 in Orlando, later seeing the photo in multiple California locations in 2015. She also claims the photo was edited to include alcoholic items on the dining table.

      Chipotle has declined commenting on the pending litigation, but the lawsuit alleges that Chipotle bought and used the Adams’ photo without confirming whether Caldwell has signed a release. Due to the lengthy span of time that the photo was in circulation, the lawsuit is seeking a massive $2,237,633,000, the amount that Chipotle allegedly profited from the photo.

      No doubt it’s a reminder to photographers everywhere that getting models to sign a release form is an absolute must.”

      1. Wow! I hope some advertising company uses my photo without permission. 😂
        Thanks, Yvette. That’s interesting. I wasn’t sure what the situation was with taking and using photos with people in them. I know that, as a teacher, we couldn’t post photos of children without parent’s permission; and one day when we were on an excursion I had to ask people to not take photos of our children. I guess they thought they were cute but it wasn’t the right thing for them to do, even if they weren’t going to do anything untoward with them.

  3. Street pictures give you lively feel or being connected with people and places as these pictures. I particularly like the last picture with the lady walking across the road with car stopped with red light. Nice attire she had on. She was intensely reading something on her phones while crossing. I know cars stopped but I still feel not comfortable.

    1. Hi YC – thanks for your nice comment – there can be that connection and I like how you said lively feel
      And I thin this photo might be a reminder that some photos do not always depict accuracy (which but he way – I am reading about right now in a cool book about “perception of images” and will try and post about it soon)
      anyhow, this lady had merely glanced down at her phone – and I took a few shots as she passed by – but i do not think she was glued to her phone but this photo might suggest it — in contrast, I have seen walkers glued to their phone (like in my Baltimore photos from a couple of years ago) and it makes me uncomfortable as well.

  4. I so love your commentary with each photo Yvette (even the underwear), which I would be lost for words as well. There is so much detail found in human life that can be found in photos that are not posed for. All are great photos. The one that stands out for me is the runner in #6. I do love how he is framed between 2 posts. The photo also stands out is that I am trying to improve my running gait, and not strike as much on the heel (which 90%-95% of runners do). It is fairly easy to focus at the beginning of a run. but a few miles in I always slip back in to old ways. The runner really seems to be in the moment. enjoying his time on the trail. Thank you for sharing! 🙂

    1. Hi Carl, I should have thought of you with the runners featured today! And so it was nice to have you chime in
      And good tidbit about not anding on the heel – I am sure there are more tidbits that “running folks” would see- and the man running in red – what stood out to me was in that photo it was like he was “gliding” and good feel the stride and freedom.

      lastly, thanks for this awesome sentence – “There is so much detail found in human life that can be found in photos that are not posed for.”
      because it reminded me why I like taking street shots and why I soak up the work of so many others that take them
      🙂

      1. You are very welcome Yvette. The well supported, cushiony sneakers are really nice. But they are forgiving, allowing us to easily land on the heel without pain. Runners who run barefoot or with minimalist shoes will land more gently on the mid or fore foot. Without the cushion the strike on the heel is jarringly hard. I tried minimalist shoes last year, but didn’t take enough time for my feet to adapt and ended up injured.

        This time around I am take it much more gradual. If I can achieve it, I’ll have much stronger and durable feet. 🙂

  5. Fun photos and your captions are great. I like #4; he has a great smile. And the photos later of the mullet…too much! lol. I remember when that hair style was all the rage. My science teacher had one when I was in junior high school.

  6. Hi Yvette, I did enjoy the smiler. I loved the river shots. What a storm. We need water so badly here in CA, and you have such an abundance which I know can be a real problem. It’s always nice after the storm, though. I enjoyed reading through your comments, too. Norah brought up a good point. I rarely get permission to take pictures from people. I do a lot of photography at events and I get verbal permission to put their pictures on Facebook. Then they can go to FB and collect their pictures from the event. I’ve never had any complaints, and rarely anyone who refuses me. However, those are different than random pictures of people who don’t realize you are photographing them. I don’t as them unless it is a child. It’s hard to chase people down. Do you have cards to give people to tell them to look on your blog for their photos? I have done that in the past, but my cards are all outdated now. 🙂 Great post.

  7. Great shots! So many faves in this set, Yvette. But it I had to choose just one it’s #4 Joy. The combination of the grinning guy under the pointing finger and rainbow flag just makes me smile. 🙂 Thanks! ~Terri
