Title: The Rat Race.Street photography is 95% black and white and the shot above shows why some need to be in color. From the 2-toned textures on the sidewalk to the right red brick lined wall and fire red doors - this one pops. I should also note that in black and white the piece of graffiti was lost and the shot became too confusing. There were just so many textures fighting in black and white that you lost the person walking on his way to mail a Netflix.Shot with a Canon EOS 6D and a EF 35mm f/1.4L lens.

Title: Holy Union.This photo seemed fitting for a Sunday blog post. I noticed this window from a few blocks aways and instantly thought “that is some amazing glass work!” Much to my surprise the window was actually no window at all. In fact it was just the side of a rundown warehouse. Everything was make believe… from the church roofline to the window ledges. Have to say it - totally impressed how this street artist not only pulled this one off, but on how he was able to mimic stained glass glowing in sunlight. Literally one of the coolest street art finds of 2013. Taken with a Canon EOS 6D and a EF 50mm f/1.2L lens.

Title: Art Appreciation.I love street photography and I love graffiti… and today’s photo reflects that quite nicely.I really like the way this image is split into almost 3 sections. On the left you have sidewalk/city/street photography, the center is a dividing line that works nicely by a wall, and then to the right you have a doorway full of street tags.Then you start to notice the little things that brings them all together. For me the 2-toned lined cobblestone on the left forces you to the right of the frame and into the center. From there the viewers eyes are forced over to the right by an almost arrow-like shadow that tells you where to start looking at graffiti.The power of composition and an triptych like feel… had to share.Location: Prague, Czech Republic. Shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and a EF 35mm f/1.4L lens.

Title: Counting Sheep.THE SHEEPEST FTW! One of my favorite street art finds while in Prague happened the moment I stumbled upon a piece by “the sheepest”. Until that moment I’ve only seen his work online through many of my European street art friends photostreams and I jumped like a little school girl the instant I noticed the sheep from across the way.Not familiar with the sheepest?

Title: Breaking Away.I’m going on record saying that Prague was one of the most magical locations that I have ever photographed.I really am blessed with the most amazing job ever… a week stay in Prague and while there I was totally inspired to hit the streets for street photography sake. Not only is the city breathtaking, but the people are straight out of a fashion magazine. The “European Way of Life” sucked me in and my camera had love at first sight.What I love most about this image is the guys pose in relation to the wall/graffiti and the way he is holding his cigarette. Not to mention the tightened look on his face in the right direction/angle… I swear this was not posed and to be honest he never saw me coming.Of course - I took a lot of cityscapes, night shots, random items and even reflections images while there. There was no way I was going to spend my downtime in my hotel room… sleep was not needed and at the end of the trip 3,000 photos (between work and play) have been logged.Location: Prague, Czech Republic.
