Here is the question. Is a street the same as a road, and vice versa? In my opinion, and as it applies to this challenge, yes – a street is a road and a road is a street, particularly this road. But where, you ask, is the street life? All around! You just can’t see it. This road (street) is teeming with life.

In descending order, they are: Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life | 2, “Super Sport” | Photo Challenge – Letters, and Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life. […]
