Excellent.

But a suggestion: Why not deal them out slowly, say one per day, instead of a big bunch all at once. Keep us in a little suspense, Russ!

Thanks, Eric. Only problem is that back in February, after the demise of the street series Iíd started, I threw up my hands and moved over to PhotoPXL. Iím now trying to catch up with where I am over there. I see 150 street shots Iíve put on PXL that havenít currently gone onto LuLa. I say ďcurrently,Ē because I know Iíve posted some of these on LuLa before this, but Iíve lost track of which ones. And in any case, I posted them long enough ago that it wonít hurt to post Ďem again.

I guess the reasons Iím doing this are:

(1) When I stopped posting street on LuLa, the thing just died. As I recall, I was the one who argued for Street Showcase in the first place.

(2) As far as Iím concerned, street is the main reason for cameras. Yes, I know we can argue about that forever, and I suspect somebody will offer to do that, but outside of photojournalism, which used to be done with drawings, what else is there? If you check just about any museum youíll see that landscape is better in paint, and so are portraits.

(3) Iím trying to get across the point that the difference between something like Keithís stunningly beautiful informal portraits and street is that street is based on poetry. A street shot tells a story. Yes, to be really effective there has to be ambiguity in the story, but there has to be something there beyond a simple statement.

Iíll continue to post on PXL, but since PXL is based on WordPress, itís both awkward and molasses slow. On LuLa we can discuss, as weíre doing now. With anything built on WordPress thatís almost impossible.
