My Street, My Photography

John Krill: Street PhotographyAll street photography is candid photography. Unposed. Unaware. A snapshot.

Wait a snapshot? Yes a snapshot. What is a snapshot? Here's one possible source of the word:
The term 'snapshot' was probably taken from its use in hunting, where it refers to the hasty firing of a shot at a moving target without taking deliberate aim.*
Isn't that we Street Photographers do - take Snapshots?

The snapshot above was taken at my Main Street - The Boardwalk at Main Beach, Laguna Beach, CA.
