Day In A Life

The end of story is not the end of story. It never is. It is just the turning of a page.

In fact, street photography has not much to do with street photography. Even if you don’t know this.

It is just like anything else that you do in and with your life. With the people around you both on and off streets. If you are lucky and clever and in good shape, you may leave a footprint.

If not, you will pass like a ship in the night. No one will ever notice you were ever there.

Street photography is mingling. Mingling with the rest of the world.

You have to decide how you want to mingle.

Good luck with it.
