Fine snap of a worker in his very personalized environment.  Great ambience!

I agree, the last one is a difficult one but what a nice shot.

Thanks all. Here's another one. Not so much ambiance.

Ambience be damned: this is classic "street."  (By the way, if I recall correctly you have posted it before, either here on on That Other Site.)

This picture also is an example of what I have always found to be so challenging about the genre: the momentary expressions and postures of all three subjects are what make it work.

To succeed with this kind of photograph, you typically only get one chance to make a great shot and if your timing isn't perfect, you wind up with an also-ran.  I can't begin to count how many of my efforts at street photography have failed because I was a second or two slow in hitting the shutter release.

These days, you can stack the odds in your favor with a digital camera by using the sports and photojournalism shooters’ "spray and pray" technique.  But back in the film era, you needed a hair trigger—and preferably to be well-caffeinated.

Thanks, Chris,

I wrote about this for LuLa quite some time back. You can reach the article here: https://luminous-landscape.com/on-street-photography/

Yes. I posted most of these street shots earlier – along with many others that don’t qualify for my collection of best street shots. These are what I think are my best out of 70 years shooting street.
You’re right. You only get one chance. It’s not like the picture of the lake, where you can come back when conditions are better. If you’re lucky you may have up to four seconds to frame, focus and shoot. You miss many, many, many for each keeper.

By the way, “spray and pray” never has worked for me. I tried it a couple time, but what was on the camera bypassed the instant I wanted.
