It is odd how so many here feel attendance at an Art School qualifies either their opinion or their work as more 'art' than someone elses...

Would you care to enlighten us about which posts here led you to believe that extraordinary contention?

Michelangelo's David was originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to be positioned along the roofline of the east end of Florence Cathedral, but was instead placed in a public square, outside the Palazzo Vecchio, the seat of civic government in Florence, in the Piazza della Signoria, where it was unveiled on 8 September 1504. The statue was moved to the Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence, in 1873, and later replaced at the original location by a replica.

Doesn't look like art to me.

Yes. He's a street photographer. So am I. I'm afraid I don't understand what that has to do with it.

You're a great street photographer too, Russ.  Your shots show emotion, juxtaposition, or levity.  Good stuff.
I try to find similar scenes but not always successful.
