Unfortunately I had to skip a few months of this column. I was simply too busy with my work to even make any photo on the streets myself. A pity because I have seen lots of good street photos in the other months.
But I picked my 7 favorites from photos that were taken in February 2012. So please don’t be disappointed if you posted photos that were taken in another period. It’s fun to look at them, but I will only feature photos that were taken recently.

Absolutely my favorite. What a classic street photo! Beautiful character, i like the low point of view and the background. Cracker!
I keep looking at this photo. The expression of the woman is wonderful. She wants to hide behind the flowers, but she is also curious. It’s crowded and the composition is difficult, but it works very good for me.
I see a lot of reflection photos, it’s fun to do. Strong for me is that head and hands seem to be apart from his body. It’s like a ghost. Good expression and although there are a lot of reflections, the photo is quite calm. I probably had cropped a part of the right of the photo, but that’s very personal.
Normally I am not very interested in street photos with people shot from the back. In this case it works good with the text on the poster. It makes me think what they are looking at. I like the composition although I had cropped a little bit on the right and left.
What I like of this photo is the strong contrasts. I wonder what the boy is doing. There is lots to see in this photo. Very good one!
I won’t make it a habit to feature one person twice, but I couldn’t resist this one. Such a beautiful intimate moment and good timing of the shot. Difficult light conditions, very good photo!
Good eye and good moment. I like the details, the hands of the kid, the toy in the window. Nice B&W processing.
I hope you like my selection in this 7-up!
