I never really believed these guys could levitate, but it looks as if that woman is convinced now. Great shot, Seamus. The ambiguity is overwhelming.

You find some corkers Seamus! Wish I could see the expression under the mask. Those of the two passersby are a hoot...

..."been there, done that" on the third at rear...gotta love this

I find that the woman seems out of balance, troubled by the floating guy!

Bravo!

I have read that a few Bushmills - never tasted it - can do that to you. This is the kind of image that I hope to capture in the future as a new endeavour in my photography. I like this mostly because of the people on the right with their backs turned almost in disbelief that is mirrored in the old women's face. Well done. I am wondering if Michael would have an exclusive forum for street photography? Anyone agree?

I second the proposal.

By the way, Stamper, Jameson (fondly known as Jemmy) can unbalance you too!

I'd vote for Stamper's motion and Seamus's second. It might be interesting and constructive.

Guys, I notice we're not being trampled upon in the rush to support the motion! Maybe 'Love Those Streets' type of thing might suffice but I think too much good work gets buried in the volume. Anyway, a little corner for street only seemed a good idea at the time.

Goodness me, if you actually require votes, add mine in too!

Why can't you simply start one in the same way that I did with Without Prejudice?

It's no guarantee that some posters won't post different sorts of images, but at least they will know (and be informed) when they mess up; go for it. I have nothing in the genre to show, really, but I do enjoy looking at work from those who do and can.

Good luck with it.

There's a thread for clouds, vehicles, and now two for trees... why not, as Rob says, start a Street thread?

Mike.

Rob's right and so is Mike. As soon as I get time to do it I'll go through some of my street and start the thread with one of them -- unless Seamus beats me to it.

But RHIR also Seamus. I started one, not well named in the beginning. Now let's see. One problem we're going to have is that anybody can run out and shoot a picture of a cloud or a car or a self-portrait or even a landscape, but a good street photograph is a lot harder to do than, say, Untitled #96 or Rhine II.

Well, which one is it? Perhaps add an invitational initial post with some perimeters/guidelines?
