Vivian Maier, an unknown, left behind a treasure of images she took while walking outside on time off. Cartier-Bresson, Frank, Meyerowitz, Arbus, Evans, the list of accomplished street photographers goes on. Their work captured a special essence of life, not posed, not set up but there in the streets, yards, avenues, porches... we pass every day. Images as compelling surround us as we walk or ride in the streets of our lives. The challenge for this contest is to shoot those street images that set them apart from snapshots. Again - opportunities abound. Take your camera or phone outside with you and capture the odd juxtaposition of a passerby and a window decoration, a special look, a special split second moment of communication, a scene that conveys a message or feeling. The examples are too numerous and varied to list. All 2D photography is welcome.
