I read this article and found, that according to Wikipedia everyone in the earlier posts here is right but you. Street photography neither presupposes B&W nor WA lenses.

I didn't say that street photography requires black & white, I said that the fact that the OP used black & white is very strong evidence that the OP was aware of a genre called "street photography" and trying to imitate it, because a lot of street photography is black and white. This is overdone a little in my opinion.

I also didn't say that wide angle lenses are the definition of street  photography. What I did say is that zoomed-in (I should have used "telephoto" but you know what I meant) photos lack artistry. This is why there is no large body of admired street photography work done primarily with telephoto lenses.
