Wet Willies by spyed Wet Willies by spyed
My current gallery represents a previous generation of my art. I have a few hundred thousand photos I've taken that I'm now curating. I draw every day just about.

Anyway I took this last night and it motivated me to turn a new leaf on my profile. It was a matter of time, but this was the catalyst.

I don't know Alexx's deviantART name but I was shooting with his Fuji X100 viewfinder. It has mad focusing problems but the photos come out nice if you muck with it enough.

Cheers to `cweeks who has truly been an inspiration as I progress as a street photographer. A few other photographers have been motivating, but `cweeks really opened my eyes.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-27
Wet Willies by +spyed For those who don't know, the CEO of deviantArt is a street photographer. A good one. And he's doing his best to promote Street Photography in dA. ( Featured by StamatisGR )

My first time in San Diego and I happened to walk across Wet Willies... kind of a cool feeling to see the location in person...except it was eerily empty and quiet, as opposed to this picture....

I opened this up to look closer not because of the title or because of the background. I didn't even notice those things until after I started reading the comments below. What captured my eye was the woman in the picture, she is beautiful. Just because you do not see the art or beauty in this picture does not mean others do not. Beauty like art is in the eye of the beholder. I love it. Seeing the things in the background makes the picture even better. Thanks for sharing this with us.

As a DD is a feature based on a gallery mod's interests, pretty sure he does deserve it, it's not a trophy or even remotely about quality.

some dude getting arrested in the background, a 2010 Camaro convertible, Wet Willie's restaurant, arrow-through-the-head hat, and... is that a hooker on the left-hand side of the image?

Either way pretty neat photo even if it does have a lot of background humour involved |D

with a name like Wet Willie's I assume it must be famous for something? anyone know? I asssume the purple beads mean a spirit connexxion and I guess its late by the stools in the extreme right-hand window of Willies... so is she waiting on a fare or another event off-camera like the huddle behind her and the cop car... maybe part of the same scenario as there aren't usually 3 cops in one black and white... unlesss the guy hanging back is in training or observing.. he's obviously right-handed anyway... so much happening in this pic...

I note miha9000, (5 comments below this), thinks it's boring... that's very sad.... nice pic Angelo.... depth of field and blurring is fun, adds stimulus...

so much happening; why's the cop looking like that?; what's that group up to? 3 copIs the main subject the figure on the bike or a small but significant detail in the background?; the blurred car snuck by while the police were engaged elsewhere....! will the person she's looking back at come?... whats going on .. the world is always full of stuff... boring... I think not....

So, I'm not here to cause trouble or anything, but what is it about this 'street' photo that makes it good?

To me it just seems like a fairly ordinary scene..... isn't there usually meant to be some sort of hidden pun/message/humour?

Well yeah i guess, its just that taking a photo of a building with a funny name doesn't seem very.......... impressive. You know what I mean?
I thought street photography was usually a bit more clever than an ordinary point-and-shoot photo.

I fully agree. I'd rather the DD gone to someone who photographed something more interesting and less widely known beforehand. ('Our' CEO probably has thousands of watchers.)
