It's been know for a long time that cities are full of life. People going to work, shopping, meeting friends - plenty of opportunities to capture great moments.
Street photography is it's a fine art. A photographer has to explore new places, find interesting people, wait for the right moment, or often think quickly to capture an emotion of event with their camera before it disappears. Artur Szlosarek discussed his Philosophy of Street Photography previous on this blog.
