Street Photography


Street (candid) photography is an art that features chance encounters and random incidents within public places.  Though people are usually featured directly, a photograph can also be taken that is absent of people and can be that of an object.

I focused on some derelict chairs in a back lane behind a restaurant.  It shows a trace of humanity that says something about life.  Although there are no people in the frame, their presence is suggested by the subject matter.  I can imagine the short order cooks sitting here while on their break. Can you?

Simplicity is shown in the isolation of the chairs.  I further simplified it by using selective colour to emphasize the red chair against a very stark environment.  

Take a walk and find a simple street scene of objects that tell a story.
