Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is Street Life.Very apposite, as I have recently been taking some images in London, trying to capture the movement in a city – people and/or transport.

Cheri Lucas Rowlands says ‘A place reveals itself on its streets, from pedestrians strolling during lunch time, to performers entertaining tourists on sidewalks, to the bustle of local markets, and more….For this challenge, document the movement (or stillness) of a street: tell a story with your snapshot, capture a scene that reveals a bit about a place, or simply show us where you live”

The common theme in these images following is the London bus! Firstly, one Saturday around St Paul’s:

There were large numbers of football supporters in Trafalgar square on another day, some chatting, some milling about and others rushing through:

Loved the slogan on the bus (hope the supporters all had theirs):

  5. Fun images Sue, I could really feel the sense of vibrancy and pace in the city.

    • Great! Just what I was aiming for…I’m trying to think more about how I photograph, to create atmosphere, mood, whatever…become less lazy 🙂

  6. Nice slices of London street life and I like the sense of motion you caught.


  7. Love the color and crowds. You’ve captured a great point in time!

    Interesting photos Sue. It always intrigues how much red I see when I go to London. So many red buses, so many people in red clothes etc. It really stands out against the grey and white of the buildings.
