Out on the street

RPS_Day_in_the_life

With a camera in hand I’m normally more at home exploring a country landscape but from time to time I do venture out into the city. This diptych was taken a few days ago in Malaga City, Southern Spain.

I still feel uncomfortable with some aspects of street photography but it does provide a good opportunity to reflect on the nature of Society, or it can just make us stop and reflect on our own lives compared to those of others.

In a sense our own journey through life has some parallels with city streets. There’s usually a lot going on in them and even though they are separate, with each street having its own name, from time to time they do intersect with each other.

Photography has immense power to capture snapshots of life on the streets, I am particularly interested in those moments when lives touch, when peoples’ paths cross. People in the same place, at the same time, but travelling through very different lives with contrasting fortunes and futures.
