Thursday’s Special – Street Photography

Over at Paula’s blog today, the theme for Thursday’s Special is Street Photography by Guest Challenger Yvette.

As Street Photography is something I like to do from time to time, I have already posted many of my better images. Hopefully, I will start taking more soonish, but for now here are three that I haven’t previously posted (well, I don’t think I have!).

Here’s a bit of fantasy (I have posted a similar one before):

Better run!

Better run!

This guy has nonchalently walked past the trap:



And here is a street artist/graffiti sprayer (you decide) at work – I loved the colours in this, her shoes and top mirrored in the yellow splashes on the wall:


See more examples at Paula’s here.



  1. You were lucky to capture a street artist in action Sue. I have never seen one actually painting, and thought that they always did this at night.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. I like graffiti when they are meaningful and in designated places which seems to be the case here, still the first shot is the most original of the three. Love your creativity, Sue. Thank you!

  5. Yes, these are artists…Like the slow shutter on the first image – giving context of people that is implied and does not strait from the artwork.

  6. A marvelous selection Sue! Love that first shot. And the clever caption 🙂

  7. Personally I like the third one for the movement, colours and the way you’ve caught the concentration on the girl’s face, she seems quite oblivious!

  8. Yes i like that…
    Very nice
    good picture

    please come and tell me what you think about

  9. Excellent captured, Sue… 🙂

  10. Interesting street art! I really like the movement in the first image and great to see a street artist in action!

  11. I love Street Art and Street Photography and especially images that capture both. Great shots, especially the Street Artist in action.

  12. Street photography & street art – I love them both! Great shots.

  13. Suzanne

    This is a great image Sue. The blurred figure in the foreground adds to sense that street art is ephemeral.

  14. That first is amazing, Sue, and I’m even a little scared of being eaten! 🙂 I’ve never seen one of these folks at work before and that makes a great shot too. Keep on rocking! 🙂

    *Better Run … really like that one Sue ! I never know how they can work so quickly (seemingly) so close up to their ‘canvas’ as most of these are large scale pictures .

  16. You have captured the feeling of fear as those people appear to be running away from all the fearsome beasts.

  17. love the blurred figure with cloak billowing ! cool.
    I enjoyed seeing your images of the street art. Some of these “graffiti artists” are so good, I wish they had their work hanging in galleries.

  18. wonderful art- I love the first best!! Great subject Sue!

  19. Your work is amazing Sue
