Street photography is a popular genre which many photographers enjoy, just for the sake of doing photography. You can find many articles on it here on dPS. Let’s look at a few street photography images from around the world and see if we can’t find similarities, as well as differences between them all.

I got carried away selecting images for this collection because I found the inter-connections intriguing and it inspired me. I hope you can see it too.

    Oh, man, that first shot of the gal on her back, legs all bent and twisted, one arm this way, the other that way…what a great shot and a great way to start the thread! Somehow that shot just wouldn’t leave my mind, even as good as many of the other shots are! (To that photographer: you go, girl!)
