Monomad Photographic Contest: People and Streets


Streets! My favorite topic for black and white. I like the streets, both deserted and very crowded. I prefer the empty ones when my condition is more blue, when I am sad and depressed. When I feel better I prefer crowded places. I like to look at people ... especially when they don't notice it. Then photography is also recommended. I like the diversity and it is very interesting to see people together on the street but each with its own problems, different from the others. I like to see this.

I am only an amateur photographer, I am led by instinct and inspiration for the moment. I think most of those who take pictures are like me. There are few professionals who posts in Steemit and, of course, its hard to compare to them.

Since taking many pictures, almost daily, I have noticed a change in the way I look at the world. Every image I see turns it into a photograph. That's why I'm upset when I don't have the camera with me and I see something very good to photograph.

Life can be black and white, isn't it? It's a strange sensation. We can wear some special glasses and see everything in black and white. Everything will be monochrome only the dreams may become color!

I have chosen #monomad for two reasons: because it encourages me to post as often as possible and because it pushes my creativity. It's often difficult to choose, as in any contest, the best option. It's subjective and it depends on our state at that moment!


This is my entry for the #monomad contest:


I can't leave this photo alone since I chose it among many others. Choosing is important but often we do not make the right choice. I hope that at this moment I did.

I must thank you!

Photographs on streets always give that kind of... depth. You can capture a lot in one photo and even the photographer can't exactly tell everything that they have captured for that moment. It's like a vibrant ever-changing story in every of them. Even when the street's empty, it just gives space for imagination with the blank spaces in each junction.

Looking at each photos, shifting focus from one person to another, it's quite an experience :) Thanks for sharing the photos!


With pleasure! Thanks for your comment so completely, you said in beautiful words what I wanted to show in the photos.
