While its my personal opinion I believe Street was coined for a style of Documentarian imagery captured in a predominantly urban environment and aesthetic. I do feel however the the principles can be applied to almost any environment. Sometimes a great snapshot is just that and doesn’t need fitting into a category. Nice image too, I bet that path’s been around for centuries longer than most cities have stood.

Thanks Dicky!yes its interesting i very rarely shoot anything urban.im from a small town in the country and youd soon get a name for yourself.But i do (try) apply the principles of street photography when out and about taking photos of family or recently at the beach for example.I dont put my images in any bracket personally.i take a lot of photos in the mountains but wouldnt class my self as a landscape photographer.
