  1. Masterful post – the window dressing and little child looking while holding parents hand are my two favs – but such a horrible humanity celebration

  2. Jane, this is such a great series of images. Gray Day in London is outstanding!

  3. Excellent as usual – and I just love that little old lady in Sydney, fixing her hair. Gave me a smile.

  4. So many wonderful images from all around the world! I like “People Crossing” all the different expressions – folks momentarily sharing space at a crosswalk – reminds me of when I’m an elevator with a bunch of strangers – I usually say something goofy to break the awkward silence. “One and Nuns” – sweet caption and you got them framed under New Mission. I love “Breaktime” and great placement of your copyright. But if I had to choose a favourite it would be “Window Dressing”! lol!

    • Thank you, Michael. Love reading your great reactions to the images. I love to examine the crowd shots later — so many surprising expressions and things you wouldn’t see at the moment. Pleased you enjoyed this series.

  5. I love the gray day in London and the expression on the little girl you spied you taking a photo of her.

  6. A great set of photographs Jane. My favourite is seeing stars. Good use of DOF to isolate the woman and child. Stockholm one of my all time favourites cities as well. Our company headquarters were situated in Stockholm and I spent many happy days and nights there on monthly visits to the city

  7. Some wonderful photos Jane. I especially like “Window dressing”. I too think the people make the place, and they’re are probably my favourite thing to photograph.

  8. Wonderful images Jane. I’ve been thinking of you with all these dreadful wild fires raging just to the north of you I believe. I hope that you haven’t been affected.

    • Hi Adrian, Glad you enjoyed the images– thanks so much. And, I so appreciate your concerns about the wildfires, It is tragic and the devastation of the area is shocking. The city was blanketed with smoke the past few days- a minor issue compared to the north. And it continues…

  9. really fabulous shots…..interesting people….can’t help but wonder…’what r they thinking?’ …Love ‘break time SF’😜

  10. Your photography is inspirational, Jane! It’s true that people make the place. Each capture blends effortlessly with your chosen quote. I truly enjoyed viewing each capture and it’s caption. 🙂

    • Hi Cheryl, People watching is fascinating, I know you’ll agree. Pleased you enjoyed the pairings and captions. I love putting them together. Thanks for enjoying and for your encouragement. I hope all is well with you and Basil.

  11. You captured some great moments there. So many stories. I particularly liked the men having a break. I am interested to know what they are saying.

  12. Jane , I love how you captured the moments of people, very well done as usual.

  13. Excellent images as usual. I particularly lik the images with either one person or a few people with one looking back at us.

  14. Beautiful images Jane 😀 My favorite is the Washington Square Dancing. Perfect timing.

  15. Watch out for trams and horse drawn carraiges it seems. And it is good to know that stars can be seen outside Hollywood. Excellent photos Jane.

  16. I love the Gray Day in London, Jane. Such a beautiful cool-color palette.

  17. Wonderful street images, Jane!
    I especially love “Gray Day, London.”
    Beautiful color and tones, and what a fantastic composition.
    Beautifully simple, and simply beautiful.
    Have a great week!

  18. Me I’d pick the first but it’s a hard choice Jane

  19. People, people everywhere! My favourite is Window Dressing, Sydney. What a great photo!!

  21. Such attitude the guy in People Crossing had!

  22. You are s clever girl… with your eye and your words! Love window dressing!

  23. Beautiful, poignant photos…love the old woman sorting her hair with huge comb. Gorgeous moment.

  24. It is a great selection, making it tough to choose the bestest among the best but the caption window dressing was super smart!

  25. Grey day in London is great

  26. a great variety of wonderful street photografies!!!!

  27. Amazing pictures, great post! 🙂

  28. A picture is more than a thousand words! Beautiful photo essay Jane. Thanks for sharing.

  29. Some real beauties in this set Jane. Gray Day and Window Dressing are two favs.

  30. All pictures are wonderful, but the gray day in London I find extra beautiful. (And break time in San Francisco 🙂 )
