Yeah, I know – this is not your everyday street photo. But sometimes I think I focus too much on having people – the magical Human Presence – in every shot. Still, when walking around in the urban areas, I see a lot of stuff that adds to the story of life on the streets. The image above was shot at a construction site near my home when I was out playing with my son.I have no idea why, but someone made that handprint on the inside of a window. It seems to deliberate to be an accident. Maybe some kind of worker ritual before they start demolish the place?
Anyway. An image like this may not serve as street photography by itself, but if presented in a context together with other more straight forward images I think it would add to the mix quite well.
If you were to put together an exhibition or a book with a street theme, would it be better with or without the handprints?
