Sure does not look like good news . . perhaps a lost lottery ticket with a winning number ?! Maybe two such tickets, even.

This is one extremely poignant capture, what a magnificent use of the cart in the photo,
so beautiful, also with the selective colouring. Superb !~

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A worrisome capture indeed with that pronounced furrowed brow! The lines in the walls make him stand out nicely in this composition.

this is a gripping image indeed ...

Mary from United States

Such a great photo! The lines of the tiles and those of the shopping cart, the wrinkles on the forehead and on the jacket, the focus on the face because of the brown hood makes it so compelling. Really a beautiful expression of the poverty around us, like that migrant worker picture of Dorothea Lange's 75 years ago.

AuBuchon from Camdenton, United States

Plight of life captured well ...

lady by the sea from United States

Again you found the combo of s many lines and designs to combine even to the face. A man in hoodie is surely a msg today with Taynon's killing...this man is the epitome of the street and how he is outside the LINES and alone with only himself to talk with or listen to that day. The hints of color bring the little hope and reality to his setting...whew! That is a powerful one.
