Street - A New Way of Seeing

Street photography is about capturing the street, whether it is life on street or something else. We walk the streets of cities everyday and we don't usually pay much attention to the things surrounding us. Among most of things that we just walk away from and consider them insignificant, there are always some stuff that can be interestingly seen from a different point of view. Paying attention to the most insignificant stuff and thinking about them can help finding interesting things. Viewing this subjects from a different view (both literally and figuratively) can result in very interesting and original photos.

No one usually cares about little lakes and dead leaves after fall showers. What is there to see ? why should we care about so common stuff ? Have you ever sat down to see them from a closer or different point of view ? The photo I have here is taken by me on a very ordinary fall day in Karimkhan Street in Tehran. There is a very little lake of water on the side walk and people are passing by. There is a dead leaf that is drowning in the little lake. Its life was as important or as insignificant as anyone else, depending on one's view of life. Anyway, I sat down and took a few photos of it to show its drowning, the lake, and the people who are passing by to show how life on street is going on.
