Hi Robert, Everybody that has commented here has agreed that they like your set of images. The sequence tells a story, a young boy runs out of energy, lies on the sidewalk to rest, perhaps to sleep a while, then he gets up and then goes on his way. I have a very simple test. I ask myself “What is the photograph(s) about”. If I can answer that I am good to go further. However, even though everybody likes your photos, not everybody thinks they are street photography and I am going to try to explain why those that hold that opinion, think the way they do.
I am going to try to explain it using images that I have previously posted here so as not to involve anyone else. I am not saying they are great photographs or that I am the big “I am”. If others disagree with my explanation then it is all on me and my back is broad enough to take the flack. Some talk about the 'human condition', it sounds good but what does it actually mean. In very simple terms it is a relationship. They are saying that there must be some sort of relationship, however intangible, between the main subject and something else. It doesn't matter what that something else is and sometimes it is not even necessary for that something else to be in shot, just so long as there is an overall balance between the main subject and some secondary object. If that secondary object can be related back to another human then that makes the relationship and the photograph stronger but a direct human is not always necessary.
Have a look at this image.http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-492422-1.html
This is an easy one. It is something nearly all of us have experienced. Something has gone missing and one of them is on the receiving end of the other ones ire. The relationship is between two people and it is balanced.
This second one is a busy photo but the main relationship is between the little girl and the pet bird, again balanced. http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-484576-1.html
This one is a little bit more intangible but the relationship is between the concentrating man and what he is writing. Balanced Again. http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-477811-1.html
This one is a bit more obscure but the relationship and balance here goes around the generational difference demonstrated by the style of dress between the two older women walking and the two younger women lying down. http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-479247-1.html
Okay, now you have the idea, go back to the three photos you have posted and ask “What is the relationship between the main subject and something else, even if it not in frame”. There isn't one and that is why some people are saying it is not 'Street.' That looks like a vinyl LP the boy is holding, maybe it is just a book or pamphlet. If he had been looking at it in the second shot, that would work, just like my guy that was on the phone and writing something down.
Have a read of the comments that went around this one, you might find it interesting.http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-479899-1.html
Lastly, I hope you realize this comment was meant as an explanation as I see it and nothing detrimental against you.
