Spent a lot of time looking at this one. It has a warm, humane, positive feel, real open friendship. But then the lady who is smiling has a home to go back to.

Well seen and nicely taken, good street / documentary photography is difficult and time consuming. You have got a cracker here.

I find the highlight on top of the buggies rain cover a little distracting and attention grabbing, perhaps just burning it in the left hand side of the photograph a little would focus the attention on the main subjects a little more.

Regards

Paul

I do find myself wondering about this one. Why is she smiling, in what otherwise seems to be a miserable scene, the weather, the man reduced, for whatever reason, to begging for money.
Also the thought of the new life in the pram, with its mothers hopes for its future, just like that man's mother presumably had hopes for him once...thought provoking.

Wonderful capture Ken.
To me, this conveys an act of kindness, giving that homeless person her umbrella
