I see a lot of street photography, which are basically random shots taken in the street. I don't know why people post these shots.. They are boring.. say nothing about the scene or don't bring out any emotions in me.. don't make me think.. why would anyone care about these shots.. my eye sees dozen or hundreds of scenes every day. 99.9% of them say nothing and are readily forgotten.

If i may make a comparison. A random shot in the street is like taking a landscape shot with no purpose other than to document the location.

Well said.
