And the guy is not wearing a yellow vest. How do we know it is not just steam coming up from vents in the streets?

And the girl is happy because she’s dining with a king instead with a clown.

Hahaha. Russ you need to chill and remember that you are the guy that didn’t realize the woman in a headscarf was a Muslim. One of Ivo’s photos I recall.

Really, Martin? How about a link to that event? I don't recall it. And why do you think only Muslim women wear headscarves?

Can this be of any help?

Sorry, Ivo. I don't see any headscarves in that link, worn by Muslims or non-Muslims.

Ok, just because I don’t like negationism, let me help a bit more.







The last one is where you started to insult me.

Remember?



Don’t reply to me, I ‘m not going any further in debates with you.

Yes that’s the one. Nice shot Ivo. The one with the Muslim woman I mean.

Right, Ivo. I missed the girl because I didn't take the trouble to bring the oversized post into a single frame.

But I stand by what I said then. Women, especially young women, often dress irrationally. I guess, like Martin, you believe that if a woman's wearing a headscarf she MUST be Muslim.

Not just wearing it, but in this day and age, the WAY headscarf is worn is a dead giveaway.

Come to think of it, it might be that she is a modern Western girl, heading to Molenbeek, and wanting to blend in ;)

Right, Slobodan. You need to explain that to Martin.

She's not watching her cellphone.  She's taking movies with it.

Right, Slobodan. You need to explain that to Martin.

The winking emoticon Slobodan used at the end of his sentence is indicative of a joke Russ. Slobodan was telling a joke. Get it?

Slobodan, a quick question: What was it about that picture that made you decide it was good street? Even the best street photo of 2018? Just curious.

Warning: Rabbit Hole Ahead

It's not always easy to write down in words what you see in a picture and see and hear on the news, and how that relates, but i'll give it a shot:

She is safely tucked away in her protective sphere, her glass bubble of instant gratification and fastfood fantasies, the connected facebook reality where everything is always fine and dandy. A frail, completely transparent glass divide separates her from the gruesome true reality of the street, the outside world.

Now, this in itself is applicable to our current times, but as far as the french revolts are concerned there is an extra interpretation as well.

A wry smile of the corporate elite in their protective glass cages while looking down upon the have-naughts running havoc outside with nothing but their clothes to protect them from the elements. (Some analysts suggest that the current revolts are possibly a result of purchasing power decrease as a consequence of 20 to 40 years of continued lack of proper inflation correction on wages. The difference is extremely small on a yearly basis, but after 40 years…).

In that sense it doesn't really matter whether she's filming the outside, taking a selfie, or perhaps videoconferencing with friends. It all fits the multilayered and congruently ambiguous narrative. The image has a relation with our times in general and can therefore stand on its own, but it also applies to the events.

Hence, it's both good photojournalism as well as good street.

A very odd take-away indeed.

To be clear, I wasn’t siding with degrub’s qualification of “corporate America laughing.” I don’t know what he meant. I was merely pointing out the only element in the picture (Burger King sign) that has something to do with corporate America.
