Streetcred: Nominees for Photo of the Year, 2016

That time again... I have to select the best photo of 2016. Remember the photo is judged on it's emotion, the timing, and the feeling when the photo was taken. And of course the people involved, and perhaps most important, the mood. Photo quality takes a back seat to all that.
ALL of these people and places were responsible for the success of the blog this year.

Here is 2015's winner::
Kayce Laine   &   Erin Pellnat

This is the Queen of R&B, Arika Kane
I chose this photo from several she sent to me. She was gracious enough to do an Op/Ed for Streetcred. Which BTW drew thousands of readers.
She was a big part of the blogs success in 2016,. xo
