Weekly Challenge #425 - Street Photography
Posted By: Hattifnatt, 06-22-2018, 02:31 AM

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #425 - STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

Thanks Tim for an interesting challenge last week and to all who participated.

This week's theme is about street photography in any way, shape or form. I enjoy it a lot although I rarely do it, but it provides a much-needed adventure outside my comfort zone since I'm mostly shooting landscapes and cityscapes. I will be especially looking for pictures that tell a story. I added some examples below.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

The Challenge will run until midnight next Friday, June 29, 2018, whichever time zone you are in.

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Couldn't decide to go monochrome or in-your-face-bright colour, so I compromised. Vibrance and saturation turned way down. Deadwood, South Dakota, prep week for 2014 Sturgis Bike Rally.

I found this moment compelling, because in the midst of a block party there is one sullen individual. To me, he was more intriguing than anything else going on at that time.

The best that I have. Don't shoot a lot of street shots.

Man in Ragusa, Sicily

Man in Ragusa. The slow shutter speed is deliberate to show movement.
