This week your photographic challenge is to do some ‘Street Photography’.
I know some of you just went into a cold sweat thinking about the idea of going out in public to photograph strangers – but let me say up front you can interpret this any way that you like and need not make it Street Photography with a people focus at all.
There are many other alternatives. For example you might like to head out on the street you live to photograph an urban landscape, or you might want to photograph some of the houses and buildings you find, or you might photograph a quirky sign or bill board…. really anything can go. Just take a walk like we talked about earlier today and see what you can find. Better still – take a friend and do the challenge together.

Once you’ve taken your ‘Street Photography’ Photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.
If you tag your photos on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSSTREET to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.
Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Contrasting Colors challenge – there were some great shots submitted.
