Nice series Rod! My favorites are: "It's the Law", the skateboarder on the receding pathway, and the young man caught mid air dancing.

I like your "eye" Toothwalker.. My favorites are mother and son mirroring similar wierd expressions, the gentlemen exchanging cash, and the woman looking at the acrobatic man. I see by your bio that you're from Norway, but some of these shots seem to be taken far from your shores. For instance, the first photo has palm trees in the background. The one of the men exchanging money are holding a US $20.00 bill. Photos are sometimes mysteries as to location.

Some excellent compositions here Allen! You left out my most favorite image of the "hulk and his daughter".

I will post mine at my first chance!

Thank you Steve. I am Dutch, but have been living in Norway since 2009. I was in the USA in November and December. Hence the parking meter (Boston), palm trees & tennis ball (Miami) and US $20 note & woman looking at the man on the poster (Tampa). Mystery solved :-)

Facial expressions are among the most rewarding things to look for in street photography. But to be honest, sometimes I don't notice the expression until I go through the images at home.

Hey Paul, thanks for clearing up the mysteries. I have the same experience about discovering things I never noticed at the moment I pressed the shutter, as compared to when I downloaded my photos and looked at them closely. Often there are pleasant surprises to be found.

Here is my contribution, images from the 2022 Manitou Springs, Colorado, "Mumbo Jumbo Gumbo Cookoff" and
"Carnivale" in 2022. The neat thing is that the 2023 events are coming up again in a few weeks. These are our versions of Mardi Gras.





























































As always, thanks for looking

"These are our versions of Mardi Gras."


See, this is what happens when a state legalizes pot.

Great series of photos guys, looking forward for more posts.

Photo of the young woman walking past the office building with glass reflecting the street and bus and buildings behind, beside an ad with a picture of cooks and skyscrapers, and ad is behind glass reflecting the street corridor... that is just iconic. The woman is staring at airfrogusmc, but the chefs in the ad are all looking somewhere else. You can see the small cooks in the bottom of the ad have their bodies facing outward from the big cook in the middle, and the woman walking by is also going away from him. The reflections are perfectly placed too, the reflection of the buildings in the top-left corner directly opposite to the reflection the corridor in the top-right. Somehow we get multiple views of the city even though only three surfaces and one person directly photographed. Perfect use of black and white.

Good idea for a thread in 2023 to review 2022.

No particular order, and absent of Stan (figured they're more architectural), but here's ten. Favorite ... eh, who knows. Just some that I liked, could have chosen different, but just too hard to decide sometimes. Kinda got on a roll, with the wheels, though.

A few where the rubber meets the road, some where feet meet the street, some heat on the street and takin' time to eat.

I think this happens more and more as our (mine anyway) shooting becomes more of that "learned instinct" or intuitive / anticipatory shooting. You know, the kind where you get the shot, without first confirming that everything is "just the way your want it" before releasing the shutter.

The "surprise" when you open 'em up at home, comes in somewhere between the surprise in a box of Cracker Jacks, and watching the image come to life in the tray. Folks tend to think that the "magic" of revelation got lost when we went from film to digital. But, with street ... yeah, when things are captured so quickly sometimes, that (mine, anyway) the mind doesn't always have time to process it all in real time.

At first, I kinda felt like those finds were just lucky and I didn't have anything much to do with 'em. Then, as they just kinda kept happening, I figured that's part of the "make your own luck" that we embrace by virtue of the effort to be there in the first place, coupled with our "learned instinct".


Note: Literally, people don't have instinct, (more like intuition) ... but the phrase stuck. I kinda argued against the phrase for a while. But then as I began to experience it a bit more, I began to better understand how it may have come to be.

I'm pretty much a structured shooter by style and temperament, most times. But when I do allow myself to shoot "looser", those surprises occur, even more. I'm inclined to think (cognitively) that there are (autonomous) parts of our brains that process so fast, we don't even (cognitively) realize they were processing ... kinda like "in the blink of an eye", only about a billion times quicker. It is here, where we try to put labels to it, such as instinct, intuition, gut, etc. to explain it. But, no matter ... where it came from inside you, it was still inside you. Even if other (cognitive) parts of the brain need more time to catch up with the autonomous parts of the brain, later.

My point ... do NOT discount your capture, just because you didn't cognitively note all aspects of the scene at the time of capture. There was "something" inside you that compelled to you capture it ... still yours, ALL yours ... even, the "surprise" elements that you found later.

Case in point (of mine) ... #9, was a "drive by shooting", but not the kind we typically associate with the phrase. As I was driving, I saw these two guys, so I took the shot while rolling by. Mind you, that's a "no look" shot since I'm literally driving, eyes on the road. Yet, something called to me to capture that scene. The irony for me upon opening the image at home, was the revelation of the waistband hardware, as captured in my own "drive by shooting". But, in addition to that, was the captured look on his face as he was watching me. For me, it was a bit of a "surprise", when I first saw the combination of him watching me, and his displayed hardware. Neither of which were part of a "cognitive" capture. I had no idea of either at the time of capture. Just a gut feel about the scene ... click.

Highly unlikely that I would have taken that shot, had I waited till I processed everything in the scene before making the capture. So, yeah ... sometimes, we find "surprises" when we get home. I often shoot with specific intent, but the surprises from the gut captures are a welcome part of things, too.

To Create ... is to make the unseen, visible.
Magic, in a moment.

Your effort, your gut, your pics ... surprises and all.

Thanks Kent for this incredibly perceptive and eloquent explanation of surprises that happen in street photography that some of us might call small "miracles".
