Challenge has finished
Ricoh cameras are known for their unobtrusive design, excellent lens and serious photographic features. All this makes them perfect for street and candid photography, where the DSLR would make the photographer too exposed. Your task in this challenge is to show us your BEST street and/or candid photo taken with Ricoh. Please, be self-critical and post only the photo you consider to be the best one in your collection and matches the challenge theme! Oh and if there is a nice story behind the photo, don't hesitate to share it with us! Photos with background story are more than welcome!

4th place
Picture taken during the Bordeaux carnival this year. There were many coloured floats and everybody was dancing and having fun. Suddenly, this young princess appeared on a float just in front of me. And she looked so deeply sad, with dried tears on her cheeks... It was so in contradiction to the surrounding mood! Height of chance, our eyes met when I pressed the shutter button.
