Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

IMG_2553

‘A place reveals itself on its streets, from pedestrians strolling during lunch time, to performers entertaining tourists on sidewalks, to the bustle of local markets, and more. Whether you’re shoveling snow from your own driveway or walking a familiar route to work or getting lost in a foreign city, a snapshot of a street (or road or path) can tell a tale.’ So says Cheri Lucas Rowlands over at the Daily Post.

I’ve chosen street life from four different countries, each with many tales to tell.

The first is my own city, Exeter, in England.

  1. Brilliant interpretation of the theme, Gilly! It’s interesting to note the cultural differences ~ th traders in front of Exeter Cathedral demonstrating typical British reserve; the casual and relaxed Italians, the bustle, energy and colour of your ancestral village, where people are looking directly at your camera (and you!) and the concentration of the youth in India ~ I can smell the aroma of spices from here!! A round the world trip from my armchair LOL 🙂

  2. each one so interesting, so different, the hard work of New Delhi, the colourful fun of your village, men’s business in Sicily … and the old stone grandeur of Exeter, like four points of a compass!

I would love to hear from you . . .
