Maybe because they take transit services and won't use personal vehicles to get out into the country?  Or, they are trying to get into/deveolp an artform all its own?  People in motion, in transactions, just strolling, eating, even their faces....they can be interesting, even compelling if you have the desire to see them that way.

I think I get that, but some of this stuff I see on here is tripe. A man drinking a cauppacino, a pair air shoes tied to a gate with comments like "wonderfully captured mood" really????  Not sniping, I just don't get it

I agree I don't find it interesting to take pictures of strangers  that you keep on your PC and look at it again like years from it.....why would I

So many of these photos are just random street scenes you can see just by looking around. One might as well take photos of napkin dispensers.

I agree with the thought that 'what can you do with these, anyhow'? The vast majority are not worth looking at once, let alone twice or more.

It's nice to say that nice pictures are nice.
