Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

I play the street life. Because there’s no place I can go. Street life. It’s the only life I know.” Randy Crawford

A tad late again as social commitments (poor excuse) got in the way but here is my contribution to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life. The brief said “A place reveals itself on its streets, from pedestrians strolling during lunch time, to performers entertaining tourists on sidewalks, to the bustle of local markets, and more.”

For this challenge, document the movement (or stillness) of a street: tell a story with your snapshot, capture a scene that reveals a bit about a place, or simply show us where you live — or a path you often take.

Here are some shots of Old Dubai’s Street Life taken on last weeks stay-cation. The first two show the textile souk and the last two show the narrow streets of Al Bastakiya.
