Thursday Challenge : Street Photography

I have just discovered this “challenge” when I saw blogging friend Tish had put in a post, and it is a beauty, such happy smiling faces. (Take a look at it here)

So it has intrigued me.

I enjoy following along with Yvette and love her street portrait themes so when I noticed she was the guest blogger for Paula I couldn’t resist joining in.

Sorry folks I am a day late…

When taking photos for a post about my suburb of the Gold Coast, Burleigh, this stranger saw me pointing my camera in her general direction and started a happy, spontaneous dance. I just love it…

Further around and along the beach front this lovely lady in the coffee nook saw me point my camera and gave me a big smile and the victory sign. (This is part of a Monday walk with Jo).

I may be home for a while so will enjoy joining in these challenges.

  6. I would love to do street photography but I simply can not get up the nerve!


  7. I saw Tish’s post earlier too. It’s a wonderful shot, isn’t it? Thanks for the mention, hon. That post of yours had heaps of street photography and it’s something you do well. (I would have been dancing along with that lady- let’s all be extrovert today, why not? 🙂 But I have my introverted days too)


    • I think because this is a tourist area many people are on holiday and with our, mostly, glorious weather it certainly makes for happy campers…
