IMO, there can't be a best street shot as there are many ways to assess it's quality. Sometimes you just get lucky and fast enough to get something, say, decent. Most of the time, you've got no time to ask before. So, just send a smile after ... :) (first time I post something, and from my somehow sleeping account. Not sure it'll work.) Trying again...

Not a "best" but a favourite from my "Street Photographers" series

Today is Janmashtami - apparently it is the birthday of Lord Krishna. His foster mother got tired of hiding the butter and hung it up in an earthen pot from ropes under the ceiling of her house. It is said that he got his friends to hoist him up, got to the pot, broke it and ate the butter. This apparent ritual is re-enacted each year. Here are a few pictures I took. These were taken against the light when there was no ambient light around.

I cut my street "teeth" in 2011 in New York with a Panasonic GF2.  That's now gone and I am hefting a 6D with 17-40L and a Fuji X100S

These are some of my very first street shots, and which I consider my best ones also.  The heavy B&W....not to the taste of all, but it was a phase :0)

I've been doing street photography on and off for years now. Mostly to catch culture and local flavour when I travel. It is a lot of fun.

These shots are from London recently:








These are from South Africa earlier this year:



Canon 5D MkII, EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM, EF 70-200m f/2.8L IS USM, EF 50mm f/1.8 II, 580EX, LP160, a couple of home made macro & pinhole lenses.

A few taken while visiting Singapore.
One taken in a street hawker stall.
One at a park.
One shot at a street corner.
And lastly, a couple of gentlemen having the same idea.  I don't know these chaps.
All taken with 5D3, 24-70 I.
Direct from camera, no edit (save for downsizing), jpg files.
