It’s really fun to make a picture that juxtaposes words with images of people that relate to those words.
Street photography composition is becoming different for me. A few months (years) ago I would have happily taken and saved all of the above pictures. After all these folks were all on the street today.
What’s changed is my desire to include more context in my photographs. The top and bottom images in this series are essentially close ups of individuals, which is all well and good however, the middle one adds more of the context surrounding the person and I like it better.

The great thing about full white beards is their contrast with the rest of the items in the image.
Currently there is a wonderful exhibit of Turner artwork at the Mystic Museum in Connecticut, USA. I was busily wandering around taking photographs of the show when I stumbled upon this lady leaning idly against a couch near the entrance. The juxtaposition of her yawn and the Turner information was too good to miss.
This nice lady and her happy poodle posed for me looking longingly into a Starbucks door for the coffee that was due to come out soon. Normally I don’t ask permission of people to photograph them but, this fun composition wasn’t going to happen without their help.
The voyeur quality of street photography is well documented by this image. This lady was huddled in a doorways with her hands over her mouth. I’m pretty sure she was talking, or listening, on her cell phone. One can’t be sure of course but, whatever was happening seemed to cause her quite a bit of concern as evidenced but the lines in her face and the worried look in her eyes.
