Photos of the Day: Eye Contact Optional

Not everyone notices their photo being taken, and not everyone wants to make direct eye contact with the camera. I think an element of shy whimsy is great in street fashion photography. Here are a few of my favorites!

Maybe you live somewhere small where street artists only pass through but leave a trail of awesome behind. Whether it be brick wall, train, public bathroom or the ground you walk on, EyeEm wants to see what you see!
