I was sitting nonchalantly on Pearl St looking for interesting street shots and happened to notice these kids. I got a few shots of drifters and whatnot, which is what I was after, but I thought this was a more powerful moment. Kids being kids in the summer. I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks to Brad for editing suggestions.

Lol - cute capture. Yup, that pretty much tells it all about today's society. For me, it would have even greater impact if you cropped in even tighter on the top, left and right hand sides. 8

The use of B&W really lets you focus on your subjects. Great shot.

great clarity, but I thing you should have lowered your camera just a little for the sake of composition, either that or crop a little of the top

Wonderful shot! This is what street photography is all about, as far as my understanding goes. Bumping to 9.
