Out and About – Street Photography

Here are a number of images of people out and about doing the mundane or the unusual that caught my interest. This “street photography” isn’t intended to be artistic, rather I hope each capture tells some sort of story. Most images include people but a few are just a strange or interesting (to me) tableaux that presented itself.
