    The Weekly Challenge for 20-25 May.

    The reply from christilou is:

    "I think in honour of Streetshooter I'll pick "On the Street" as our next theme! Thanks :)"


    So there you have it. We all have street shots of some sort. This challenge closes on Wed 25 May at 8PM New York time. Let's see if we can crack the 30 entries mark this week.

    I guess I will be first. I'm a newbie on this type of photography and hope to learn a lot by following others on this website. I'm off to work and took this shot while coming out of the Gatwick Airport. This is my first "street shot" and first PP with Silver Efex Pro demo. Be gentle on me!

    Tough to choose a single favorite street shot, so figured I'd toss this one out there in honor of the rapture that, based on the lack of early news from our Aussie friends, appears not to be happening. Too bad, I was starting to think that separating all of those who believe that deeply from those of us who don't might have worked out well for EVERYone involved. A veritable win/win solution! :cool: But, alas, I guess we'll just have to keep figuring out how to live with each other for a while longer...

    We are tired

    While preparing for the mandatory mounument photo, encountred this group who seemed to be arriving on foot from a long way. Nobody looking at the Reichstag, only for a place to sit.

    I've decided to take this WC literally, as in on the street rather than street, so for this one I've gone urban.

    You're not gonna believe this, but the David Hoffberger who's name appears in this photograph is an old family friend. My father grew up with his father (and worked for him for several years - he was the owner of the Baltimore Orioles in the '60s and '70s), my siblings and I grew up with David and his siblings, and he and my brother are still in fairly regular touch and see each other reasonably frequently.

    Its a very small electronic world, no?

    Nice photo too, BTW!

    Thanks, BB. Next question is does a public but indoors image qualify as "street"?
