I was quite surprised to find that “people watching” is considered a hobby by the urban dictionary.
People Watching – A Hobby in which you go out and watch people. The way they act, dress, & talk. Like bird watching except with people.Very entertaining.
In a way street photography could be considered bird watching of people. Taking pictures of interesting a rare subjects in their natural habitat. Usually using long lenses to capture moments with out spooking the subject with your movement.
I shot this image walking down the street and noticed her looking down as people walked by, what really caught my attention was that it felt more like she was guarding the street keeping an eye out on what was happening below like the statue of the Knight in the alcove.
