The art of street photography has recently captured my interest. Although there isn’t a specific definition for street photography it is widely regarded as capturing candid moments in public spaces where people interact with their environment. I find it fascinating how a still image of a seemingly mundane moment can tell such an interesting story.
Although the opportunity for street photography in my hometown is somewhat limited I have been inspired by following photography blogs of quite a few talented street photographers from around the world:
However, here in Umhlanga, where I am currently on holiday, there seem to be endless opportunities for street photography. There is a wide walkway running all along a busy stretch of the beach where many interesting characters and scenes can be found.
So keep an eye out for my next few posts as I feature some of my first attempts at street photography!
