lots of people seem to be saying that, they don't like street photography.

everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I for one hate landscapes and shots of flowers, I feel every single one is a cliche and have seen countless postcards feature these images.

but I don't deny the artistic license of the whole genre.

lots of ppl don't get minimalist art, but like it or not, it is an art form.

Street photography, like any other genre, has a place in this art form.  I personally like abstract and minimalistic art and dislike antiques, for example.  I love beautiful things like flowers, but am not a people-person, hence street photography doesn't appeal to me. Imagine how boring life (and photography) would be, if we all did the same thing.
