Window Washing

There seems to be a great deal of discussion and confusion amongst street photographers over the meaning and impact of the GDPR. Ipernity has restricted street photos that identify people in photos that reveal their faces to private albums. Many street shooters I follow in the EU no longer reveal people's faces in their photography. There is no such restriction in the U.S. which is where I shoot. But, in viewing street done within the restrictions of the GDPR I must admit I find interesting. The restriction to me seems more of a style than a restriction. Thus I've begun to shoot within that 'style' in my street photography, as reflected in this photograph. Since, my street has always emphasized eye contact, this new effort is a seminal change for me. And, for a while I think I will be pursuing it. As a result, some of my images I can now post to web sites based in the EU. Where before I was completely banned.
