Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Streetlife


While I sometimes take “street photos” around home, I am much more likely to focus on the street life while away from home.  Here are a few from various places we’ve been in the past few years…..

Rainy Rapallo Italy

Rainy Rapallo Italy

This first one is during a downpour in the little town of Rapallo, Italy – we shared this small tunnel for a few moments trying to keep out of the deluge…..

What is the drinking age in France?

This next one is from Nice, France.  She caught my eye as I thought she might be a little underage…..  Her father came back to the table a little later and I felt better about her future!

Colorful Street

I captured this image while we going down a highway outside of Delhi, India.  The man’s pensive look caught my eye first but I also wanted to catch the colorful adornments of the trucks passing by…….

Katmandu cutie

This young lady was just relaxing next to her bike on a sunny afternoon in Katmandu.  I thought the scene captured the native dress, and a little of the local flavor with the hindu shrine next to her…..

Isn't a waterway a street...of sorts?

This last colorful scene is from the floating islands of Lake Titicaca where the Uros people live.  It was a still morning with tranquil people in a very beautiful place.

  5. Beautiful pics! The young girl from France looks so mature, not because of the beer, but the way she’s sitting, cross legged, her clothes!

    • Anna – I think you’re right -it all adds to the illusion and makes the scene interesting!

  7. Like the effect of the first photograph. I would want to walk down that street as well.

    • Thanks Colline – its hard to tell but it was really quite a downpour. But the shadows, the umbrella, and light outside the tunnel made it a nice scene (I think).

      • I agree.

    • Thanks Jeff – not sure I have any of empty streets like yours – I only get up that early when I’m in the wild (or heading to a golf course…)
