So your assignment is to pick a street out of your town, village or city and document life on that street for two days.  Try to take pics that show types of people there, things they do, images that reveal the people's inner feelings.

I don't get this.  Maybe this works in the poor inner-city or in certain other areas like college campuses, but where I live a street is a transportation corridor.  I'd get a lot of pictures of cars going by, and not much else.

Shoot them in B/W, make sure there is more than one type of 'blur' in the photo, make sure no single vehicle is completely within the frame, and voila, you have art! It'd still be better than photos of peoples' backsides.
