    Thanks for supporting the monthly theme Ralph. Uploading images to it is easy when you get the hang of it. I put a guide line at the beinging of every Monthly Theme. I also post a couple of links to give members some inspiration.

    The best way to insert an image is to use the right hand icon in the edit menu. It looks like a picture of a mountain. It’s best to prepare your picture before hand to have a long side of something like 650px at 72ppi, but the upload dialogue box has a resize option.

    I think your photo captures a typical street scene with people deep in discussion. It makes me wonder what they’re talking about. I would have probably cropped off the guy on the far left. The guy in red looks like one of those footballers who talks to their hand.

    Not too serious for street photography. Sasha was sat outside early evening watching passers by to bark at. Took a few pics of him.

    Thanks Ken. I like the blurred car which adds contrast ans something Sasha to bark at!

    Here’s a photo I entered for the last PDI competition. It would be interesting for me to hear our members comments so I can compare them with what the judge said.

    UTMB 2

    The idea is that these are on a street and therefore qualify.
    The reason is to push the UTMB races. When these were taken these guys were amongst the last to finish a 102 mile race through the Alps and had been running for 40 hours, including two ‘nightmare’ night runs on paths I baulked at in daylight!! Many more, of the original 2,000 plus starters were pulled because their time had expired.
    I anyone wants to have a go (but it is very expensive) – I can give them the details!!

    No wonder they look so tired. I’m amazed anyone can manage such a fete, let alone the youngsters. I’m not sure which one I like best as they’re so similar and capture the atmosphere of the event well.

    During last summer’s armed forces day in Crewe Park I was just seeing what the mayor of Cheshire East was up to and his partner suddenly started laughing. So I quickly grabbed this snapshot in time. I like to think that this is street photography where some unplanned and unposed activity happens and you’re able to capture it.

    At the same event this soldier came over to near where I was standing and hugged the young lad. It was a nice moment gone in a flash. He doesn’t look sharp, but I think the emotion is more important to me.

    Here’s one more example that would call street photography of some dancers in Nantwich during the Jazz Festival. I decided to use a slow shutter speed to create some blur which I hoped would capture the atmosphere. I’m not sure if it worked. What do you think?

    Sorry. He used to be the mayor of Cheshire East. Well spotted. I was more interested in his partner who had the giggles!
