When was the last time a random passenger in a bus made your jaw drop?
Happens with me all the time!
Whenever I go out into the streets, I never plan on what I'm going to shoot, nor do I have a particular theme in mind.
Mind you, planning ahead is highly benefical to a Street Photographer or any photographer for that matter - a practice that almost always yeilds excellent results when properly utilized.
For me, it's just the sheer excitment of stepping into a vast concrete jungle, unsure about what's around the next corner, or perceiving an event that is about to unfold before you, the sound of your heart beating as you walk/run towards the developing scene - all the while hoping that you get there in time to take... that one shot, that ultimate payoff; is all that matters.
Sometimes you could be standing there observing a street scene when you begin to notice things falling into place; a photo opportunity forming right before your very eyes.

"Come. You be a gear right here,
and I'll be a pulley over there.
Together, we'll both obey
the lever's dream."

"I want nothing more."

We, my husband and I, were the typical childless young couple who could afford such "daycations" as this. We enjoyed traveling within a few hours of our home, relishing adventure where we found it. He was the outdoorsy type and I, being the more laid-back, compliant of us two, often agreed to his mountain biking or hiking proposals and this collegiate town, we'd heard, had some excellent trails.
It was one of those brisk days in early autumn when the sky is so blue it looks like it's hurting itself with the effort and the first cool breezes make the long hot summer just a memory, if that. And when life seems that sweet, it's hard to imagine any danger lurking about, even when everyone y

I showed you the parts of me that weren't all that pretty,
You told me it didn't matter how flawed I was, you'd always love me,
I smiled, and although your words hurt, you were the only thing that gave me comfort,
You fed me with you love and manipulations,
You filled me with yourself,
and tore me down whilst building me up,
I was your victim,
Just another name on your list,
My future seemed dim,
and I really needed this,
But I was a mere pawn,
on your blood stained lawn,
and you're not bent, or messed up,
You are simply broken.

And made me pretend to be happy,

and burns the very core of my soul,
Perhaps you'll dance with me again one day,
and we watch our sweet world crumble and burn,
We'll waltz over those screaming melting faces,
I will be your victim,
Just another name on your list,
