URBAN EXPLORATION #3: Lvivsky street kids

It has been ages since I last posted here. Decided to start back again, so without further ado...

Was sifting through some remnants from my time in Ukraine and ran across these, shot from the hip in a dilapidated playground, city center on a weekday afternoon:

The photographer is an armed version of the solitary walker reconnoitering, stalking, cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes. Adept of the joys of watching, connoisseur of empathy, the flâneur finds the world 'picturesque.'

-Susan Sontag, on how the camera has become the tool of the flâneur
