I spent a few hours on Saturday just walking around Dublin with nothing to do and nowhere to go. I purposely took some time and dedicated it to just observing life around me and found it to be very therapeutic and would recommend it to everyone. Street photography is more than just taking snapshots, it’s about capturing moments in time that are gone in a split second. You need to be able to spot something that tells a story, be it poignant, ironic, a “day in the life” situation or something that’s funny. I particularly like contrasting moments like the gentleman lighting a pipe beside a picture of a woman wearing a gas mask or the elderly couple listening to the two young buskers (who were playing heavy metal). Someone also said that in that shot, it looks like the bass player is standing on the ladies shopping trolley.
