7-12-14 Street? Travel? Tourist Brochure?

I talked briefly yesterday about the “The Photographic Tools For Travel Photography” taught by David H Wells at ICP. He truly is a remarkable teacher.  If he is doing a class or workshop in your area, take it. You can find his photo site here:  http://davidhwells.com/ and his blog/educational site HERE: http://thewellspoint.com/

One thing David strongly recommended is to ask fellow photographers to give you their edit of your work.  So I am asking you, my readers to jump in!

As I said yesterday we all, David, the class, and myself thought my work bordered or was street photography. As it happens I am in Wellfleet and thought I would ask your opinion. Which of the following do you think are street and which travel? Comments below or back channel are both appreciated.

Travel or street these young women should not be doing this. It is completely destructive of the dunes.
