Since we began this blog, we’ve written many posts on or about street photography. Just enter “street photography” into the search box on the right side of this page and you’ll see what I mean. And it’s been a popular subject, based on the comments, email and photos submitted to 2 Guys Photo in response. We’re very happy to receive your feedback and have collected some of your work and related discoveries to share with everyone here.

“Ed and Rey,
This is in response to your recent post “Impromptu” and request for photos.

Nothing out of the ordinary here, other than the challenge for the old landscape photographer.” Duane Bender
