This is what street photography means to me:
To get to know people and learn how to see
To discover new places of interest to me
To be curious of new aspects of reality
And to show how things go in this society
To stroll through the city and hunt for new pics
To push down the trigger and hear how it clicks
To think: How will I manage to be all unnoticed?
How to be a bystander and still come the closest?
To combine two elements and to merge them in one
To catch in the windows reflections of sun
To watch out for patterns and colors and frames
To take pictures of strangers and give them new names
To come home excited of what I have seen
To be eager to develop the pics on my screen
To select and compile them …and finally
Yeah this is what street photography means to me
