Streetphotography isn't about architecture, but it is the art of
photographing people in the city as they interact with other people,
their surroundings or with YOU; the photographer.

There are many different ways and styles to do streetphotography.

You can use a long tele-lens and work as a sniper making sure people
won't notice you, or you can use a wide lens and engage with the people
you are capturing with your camera.

Streetphotography is a rewarding form of photography
where style and personality becomes a part of the picture.

Cartier-Bresson’s decisive moment comes when:

‘the picture in one glance says everything and says it in terms of design,
rhythm, pattern – every element in strong relationship with all the others…
Photography is a matter of visual geometry’.

I recall him telling me ‘Order and organization are the educated heart of a picture.

Margaret R. Weiss - Saturday Review – World, January 1974.
[cited in: “Creative Camera” May 1974, p. 148]
