Street Photography, is not limited to shooting on actual streets, but could be done at any public place where human life can be observed. Over the years, I’ve shot quite a bit of Street Photography in shopping malls, museums, stations and last but not least since I spend a lot of time around them, “airports”. 
Yesterday, I was waiting for my flight back home to Dubai at Brussels airport, when I spotted a good potential photo opportunity at one of the “travelators” (moving walkway). The airport had installed a number of stickers to the sides of the walkways, that showed legs, a bicycle, skateboard and some other stuff; a perfect opportunity to play with juxtaposition in Street Photography. 

While I came up with half a dozen images that worked well for me, the one below, stood out the most because of the contrast between the gentleman wearing a suit and the sticker of somebody playing football below. 

Timing images like these is essential and doing so by taking a single frame is not easy. This is one of the exceptions where I do recommend using a high speed burst mode (CH). Take a small high speed burst as the person is passing by and then use the one that works best. No need to feel bad; use the camera technology to your advantage!
