One from Korea in 1953, one from Vietnam in 1965, two from elsewhere.

Thanks, Kevin. A couple of those were back in the day. Two of them were from the mid 2010’s. But I’m still at it. Here’s one from six months ago — before Florida got too hot for outdoor street work. Temperatures and humidities are starting to come around now, so I may be able to shoot again away from restaurants and similar indoor locations.
I keep reading about how street photography has changed drastically over recent years. Well, what’s there to be shot may have changed. You don’t see people in phone booths anymore, people dress differently, and (most) cars don’t have fins, etc. But the heart of street photography, as I pointed out in http://www.russ-lewis.com/essays/OnStreetPhotography.pdf, is interrelationships between people and other people and between people and their environment. That hasn’t changed. It’s a shame that street photography has such a misleading name. The implication is that you need to be in the street to shoot street photography, or that a picture with a street in it is street photography. But people are the heart of street photography. Always have been. Always will be.

Good to see you here, Russ.
The second one is my favourite. People have been tuning each other out forever; cell phones just make it easier. ?
