My last post on street life is of People Along the Way. I enjoyed this Weekly Challenge as it gave me the opportunity to share some of my favorite shots taken on the Island of Crete in Greece.

Another view of street life on the Island of Crete in Greece. Pedestrians share the walkway with bicycles, motor-bikes and the like.

The markets in Crete made me think of times past with their vivid displays of fruits, vegetables and other delectable goods for sale.

There was so much color, festivity and livelihood at the Lions Square in Heraklion on the Island of Crete, Greece.  I loved watching the two boys play in the street as though there were no one else around to see them. They sparred and danced around the square for over 15 minutes. I’m sure big brother was letting the younger excel at the game as it continued on and on.  Take a look off to the left, sitting on the edge of the Lions Fountain is a young street entertainer playing the accordion while another on looker further up is a woman carrying the large bundle of colorful balloons for sale.  Inexpensive and colorful entertainment was in abundance.

While in New York City…  I [LOVE] New York City.   I had the luck to come across four young street dancers who entertained the crowd for quite some time.  The young lady to the left and the tall Michael Jackson type in the center were the highlights of the group with their sharp stepping and quick feet.  I don’t think the little lady in red ever lost the big infectious smile on her face.  I found myself clapping and smiling just a broadly.
