Full View please.

Street photography is ungrateful. Nevertheless, I'll continue waiting for moments like this one.

I especially like the second one, because of her gaze and the very graphic aspect of the image.

I stole this from Yahoo answers but it's a nice short description of the dream:

Holden [the main character] imagines children playing a game in a field of rye near a cliff, and it is his role to protect the children by catching anyone who comes too near to the edge. Such a job, he says, would make him truly happy. Holden tells Phoebe [his younger sister] he has always wanted to be a Catcher in the Rye (symbolically, a rescuer of children).

The main theme of the book is loss of innocence, I think. Anyhow, it's a damn good book and this here is a damn good photo.

Thanks a lot, Bruno. I am not sure if that's my mood that should be blamed, or my expectations that are too high, but I have very often come back from a photo walk in the city recently, having taken NO image, thus some kind of frustration, and a desire to make some "staged" portraiture instead... But I value to much street to entirely give up.

Hmm.I know what you are talking about.
I have wandered the same streets for years
trying to get a particular shot.
And when you finally nail it,you know you have
something special.

It is ungrateful in the sense that you can be wandering for hours to find a scene worth capturing, and not find anything. You can also find the perfect scene, the perfect light and angle, and have somebody who steps between you and your perfect subject while you shoot.
It is so much more difficult - random - than a photography that is staged, no matter how difficult it is to set up the right light, find the right model position...

Thank you. I was using a prime 28mm here, and there was no way that I could reduce the depth of field. Then I could also have played with a b&w conversion - which makes a street image more "sellable" - but I always tend to believe that it is being untrue to the reality to convert a street capture to b&w. So, here I am left with a straight untouched capture of these kids playing, and a composition that is not very conventional, so only the human side could save the image. I am glad you see it that way too!
