Street Photography - The OriginsAs we all know from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding everything was invented by the Greeks. Well, ok we left some trivial things to be invented by the Chinese as well. What you may not know is that Street photography was also invented by the Greeks before Photography itself was even invented.Street Photography - The Origins3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment or "the supreme moment". The Greeks believed the concept of Kairos is achieved when such a moment is grasped for otherwise the moment is gone and cannot be re-captured. According to ancient Greeks, Kairos was the god of the “fleeting moment.”
Interestingly the ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While chronos is quantitative, kairos has a qualitative nature.
Does the above remind you of the "Decisive moment", the essence of Street Photography?
Where to find Street in dAWell...obviously not in the site's Street Gallery unless you are willing to dig hard.Where to find Street in dA3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I've been hearing complaints and I'm complaining myself about the Street Gallery. As it seems it is impossible to open people's heads and stick the definition of Street Photography (if there is one) on their brains.
So, what can we do?
Fav the real street images that you see in the Street Gallery
This way, they'll rise above the empty streets, girlfriends, converse shoes and all the irrelevant stuff that floods the Gallery, in the Popular view of it.
Watch the Street Groups
and enjoy the street shots that come everyday in your inbox.
Once, there was only one Street club in dA. Now there are several Street groups that you can follow.
Try them, find out which ones are alive, which ones are worth watching, stick to them and support them.
In alphabetical order , I present you the Street groups of deviantArt

I forgot to take my medicine, it seems like such a shame,
and now I'm looking for someone who can tell me my name.
I forgot to take my medicine, it seems like such a shame -
you know how these things happen, I don't think I'm to blame.
I met a cat who told me that my name is Slim,
I don't think he is fooling me on some malicious whim.

I was walking down the street when I saw a broken chair,
you know it made me happy that no one was sitting there.

I said that he could be my friend,
but we could not be tight.
I met a girl on Tuesday

Tea with my monkeyTea with my monkey2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The spotted men are walking and a storm is close behind,
it's bound to get them soon and I hope they do not mind.
Sometimes you check the mirror and a storm is what you find.
I was going to bake a cake but my sugar had a flaw -
it was the meanest sugar that you ever saw.
I think that kind of sugar ought to be against the law.
I bought a can of freedom, so glad to make it mine -
freedom is not free, it cost a dollar forty nine.
If the can would only open, things would be just fine.
You still can see the pipes sticking up out of the ground -
the trucks would pull up to the place and make a pumping sound.
They don't deliver any more, we have to go to town.
I have a funky monkey who says his name is Stan -
on Tuesday he goes out and plays the banjo in a band.
When I have tea he comes to me and sits upon my hand.
Some people like to stay indoors with all the curtains drawn

Feed the wolfFeed the wolf2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You have to feed the wolf.
He does not want a grandmother.
He does not want a girl in red.
They would not enjoy it
and he could end up dead.
You have to feed the wolf.
He does not want a nightmare,
he does not want a dream.
Nightmares taste like old, dry bread
and dreams too fresh and green.
You have to feed the wolf.
He does not want the moon.
He does not want the stars.
He swallowed half the moon last night -
stars make his throat feel sore.
You have to feed the wolf.
He does not want a language
he never knew till now.
He swallowed seven just last week -
they all turned into howls.
You have to feed the wolf.
He does not want tomorrow,
does not want yesterday.
Despite their lovely fragrance,
when bit they slip away.
You have to feed the wolf.
Try roses. Yes.
He wants roses.

there are times
when we've had enough
and we need some words
cyril, better known as KizukiTamura
has gone from dA again
i don't know why
but in wondering
i am aware
everything about modern consumer life
promotes the cliche
the hardworking network marketeer
those who have a strategy for being popular
regardless of the quality
or and especially the originality
of their work
so frustrating it must be
for those who try to promote
and the experimental
the world is becoming very similar
every city on this planet is starting to look the same
those who ruthlessly promote themselves
can achieve commercial success
while those who strive to promote others
and to promote originality
are constantly banging their heads against a brick wall
everything that is good in this world
was built by people with ideals and passion
if they sell out
find fame and fortune
good luck to them
but there are too many projects
too many artists
just built on the drive
Old blue dogOld blue dog2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have an old blue dog, as big as he can be.
He eats way too much but he keeps me company.
I call him Jim and he always calls me sir.
I don't make him do that but it's what he prefers.
He sharpens his claws on the oak tree in the yard.
His claws are nice and sharp but the tree is kind of scarred.
If I sit at the piano he gives me a sideways glance.
But when I play boogie-woogie, he always starts to dance.
He goes to town on Tuesday after I help him groom,
comes home again on Wednesday smelling like perfume.
One time he fought that orange cat that lives a mile away.
But then they licked each other and they are friends today.
He saved a lot of people that time the sky fell down.
They gave him a nice medal but he doesn't wear it now.
One thing he never learned to do is play the violin.
He says he played the banjo once and he thinks he could again.
If I can't sleep at night, he turns the radio on
still bluer than you.still bluer than you11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm blue as a bottle, I'm blue as a bone,
I'm blue as old Sisyphus rolling that stone.
I'm blue as a cop and blue as a thief.
I take all these pills and I get no relief.
I'm blue as a river and blue as a rose,
I'm blue as an emperor wearing new clothes.
I'm blue as a porpoise and blue as a peach.
Any cure for these blues is way out of reach.
I'm blue as a cheese and blue as a chair,
I'm blue as a handle holding on to thin air.
I'm blue as a candle and blue as a cloud.
I think being this blue should not be allowed.
I'm blue as a spaniel and blue as a spruce,
I'm blue as an orange that is all out of juice.
I'm blue as that boy who was blowing his horn.
I've been blue as can be ever since I was born.
I'm blue as a tractor, I'm blue as a train,
I'm blue as a rain

We broke the covenant and thrived, convinced we could go on.
But when we saw those penguins fly we thought we might be wrong.
The sound of five hands clapping fell upon the ears of all.
The sixth one had gone off somewhere to write upon a wall.
A trumpet played so sweetly in a nearby space.
A waxing moon was in the sky with clouds that looked like lace.
I heard it in the alley on the night of April 3.
I stopped and stood and listened, though I had places to be.
I'm going back to old K.C., why don't you meet me there?
We'll watch the butterflies go by and sm

When you see the world is made of cardboard - man, that's a surprise.
Some people try to accept it - some won't believe their eyes.
The caribou wear breathing masks because of what's been done.
The weasels tie them up with thread and think they cannot run.
We call him Dr. Oxygen, we watch him at his task -
who knows what he is breathing beneath his beaky mask?
You may keep your own place spic and span, you may vacuum every day.
But the stuff going on outside your door - who will sweep all that away?
You may get yourself a solid safe and stash your precio
A toast to the bluesA toast to the blues2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I got myself together, you know what that's about.
I showed the blues to the door and ushered them out.
I shut the door and locked it, so I was safe inside.
But there was blues in my kitchen, looking me in the eye.
I said, "How did you get here, when I just threw you out?"
The blues said, "There's a way, Slim, with any old house."
"You may live inside a castle, you may live in a shack.
Throw me out the front door and I come in the back.
"If there is no back door, then a window will do.
And you won't even hear me, in my cat burglar shoes.
"If there is no back door and no windows at all,
I come like electric current, through the socket in the wall.
"And if you have no sockets and you have no juice,
one door and no windows - then you really have the blues."
There was no more to say, and there was nothing to do.
I poured some wine in a glass, and said, "Blues, here's to you."
Morning mindMorning mind2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I woke up on Monday with a white whale on my mind.
I was not on board the Pequod, so everything was fine.
I woke up on Tuesday with coffee on my mind.
It was waiting in the kitchen, so everything was fine.
I woke up on Wednesday with a piano on my mind.
I don't know how to play it but I guess it will be fine.
I woke up on Thursday with a big cat on my mind.
He was purring in A major, so everything was fine.
I woke up on Friday with broken things on my mind.
Some broken things have beauty so I hope that will be fine.
Saturday I woke up and I'd left the earth behind.
Just a dream that I'd been having, so everything was fine.
I woke up on Sunday with a sweet woman on my mind.
She was sleeping there beside me, so everything was fine.

Mystic Donkey..Mystic Donkey2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been too long since I traveled, and I'm not satisfied.
I'm going to get a mystic donkey, and go for a ride.
I budded then I bloomed and now I'm going to seed.
I think my mystic donkey will be just what I need.
Everybody tries to tell you what you can and cannot do.
But a mystic donkey tells you about the road in front of you.
I turned forty-three last Friday, now I'm almost forty-four.
I got to ride my mystic donkey before I can't ride any more.
A storm came down from Russia, covered everything in snow.
A mystic donkey keeps on moving when no one else can go.
Last night the moon was full, seven whales were in the bay.
When you ride a mystic donkey, no one can make you stay.
The world is full of trouble, it could almost make you cry.

driving trouble awaydriving trouble away1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I met trouble on the street, it asked me for the time of day.
I checked my watch and answered, "Time you were on your way."
Trouble said, "Well, maybe I'll walk with you as you go."
I said, "Is there any way to stop you?" and trouble answered no.
So I walked on with trouble, we went down Ezekiel Street,
passing by those dry bones where a great army met defeat.
There were wheels above us in the sky, their sound a steady drone.
I saw how that made trouble smile, and I wished I was alone.
The longer I walked with trouble, the less I liked his company.
But he said, "You are all right, son, I think you belong with me."
We came back to my neighborhood, not saying too many words.
When we cut through the little park, I was watching all the birds.
I said to trouble, "Take a look - see that crow so big and black?
It's being chased by those two sparrows diving at its back."

Jump on in, babe, I'm gassed up and ready to go.
We'll leave trouble behind us and go down the road.
I've got a head full of dreams and half of them are about you.
Come ride with me, babe, we'll make some of them come true.
Everything is broken but some things still work pretty well.
While we are living we'll leave the half-dead to bury themselves.
Some people wait for permission, but it won't ever arrive.
You have to choose for yourself to get in and drive.
There are hazards on the highway, but I know how to use a jack.
My trunk is full of spare tires, we can deal with a flat.
We may run into storms, but that will be all right.
I got new windshield wipers and my weather seals are tight.
We can drive in the rain, though we may have to go slow.
If it rains mud and frogs, we will pull off the road.
When we check our rear-view mirrors, we will look without fear.
The objects in those mirrors are further than they appear.
