We have a number of folks doing "street photography." I have a number  
of conflicting feelings about this sort of work. I find your work to  
be quite interesting. I'd love for this group to discuss the genre.  
Just about the time I start feeling, "this stuff is really boring.  
Why do people photograph other people standing or walking on the  
street?" I open your images and feel, "oh these are some interesting  
images of people standing or walking on the street." Can one  
articulate what makes a powerful "street photograph?"
