This is the second image of street kids.
They are trying to warm themselves by the fire they made.
This is it, what a brilliant photograph and if it doesn't get an award of some sort I would have no faith in the site as far as awards go. Congratulations!

Thank you pooch, tomorrow I will upload some special needs children in black and white of course.
Excellent bw capture.
The social commentary in this (and your other shots) is wonderful, you have some truly evocative work in your portfolio. Thank you for sharing them.
Liked the last one, love this one. Can't wait for the next!
Thanks Kate I am seriously thinking of going in that direction (Social Documentary)
Thanks Nev only allowed 1 a day.
this is fab.reminds me of the days of muckin about. love it.
Great B&W image, deserves more clicks.
I agree. This is an underrated image. Good tones in there albeit some of the shadows have blocked up but, that said, great subject matter, well captured, good composition and presentation. Seen worse get more...
I guess we all did this sort of thing as kids, you have taken and presented this view of kids so well. Colour would have soften all the edges of this...B/W rules.
All the very best
Thank you all for your comments.
An excellent capture and agree with Mike.Love the boy with his leg cocked up! Brilliant work.
Great moment captured. Have just looked at the rest of your portfolio and it's definitely gritty. I agree with first comment by Poochie on this one. I'm no expert or critic but I know what I like... looking forward to the next snap-shot in your social commentary.
Fantastic capture, I love this kind of photography, in the moment stuff. Brilliant. Surely a HC, Pete?
Fabulous again! Impressive work ...
excellent again, allthough I might have cropped it a bit closer (bit of the bottom and left)
Excellent, classic, solid
A very apt title for this classic image
Just come across you PF.... love your "street" work... great image..
wonderful image..absolute class
Great shot. -=Walter
Thanks all for comments..
Fantastic/typical young boys just like we where I suppose.
Excellent. Shame we can't see it larger (assuming it's sharp enough to view larger? Looks like it is)
great composition, great feeling to it.
Every picture tells a story, for this image it certainly is true..
This is seriously good social documentary photography (IMO). Your portfolio is excellent, containing some outstanding images.
Thanks all for your comments
Wonderful gritty realisum to this.
Fantastic presentation of these Angels.....Exceptional in B/W, Luv this!
Fabulous, love it.
Thanks T much appreciated..
Great tones and textures. Nice slice of life.
a great mono street shot, really nice,
great shot, it says a lot
This is fantastic, you capture the boys cheeky charm. Love your portfolio - nice work.
Excellent bw, great tonal range.
This is a wonderful image. I like both shots of the street kids. The b/w works very well with this. I also agree with paintman this would make an excellent image for a documentry.Very Well done.
Thanks nick, Tanya..
Great social capture , after Bert Hardy . Boys do love being photographed .
A good picture, it tells a story.
I have to appologise. I dont know why i dont have you in my faves. I was missing a lot. I agree with poochie, this should have had atleast an HC.
Still one of the best .
Thanks for your comments and your support xx
Very nice portfoilio of B&W images.This is Great.
Another great image love your work
Love the "old" style you use on your shots. Paul

Excellent b/w,interesting subject,photojounalism and detail.Take care.Ann
Fantastic gritty realism. Your PF is full of such wonderful work with people, a real gift.

Ha ha they look like they,v been upto no good. Brilliant picture. Well done.
A bundle of trouble if I ever saw one!
Wonderful 'social documentary' image - bw perfect medium and the grittiness fits like a glove. You certainly have a flair for this type of photography - great pf. Bruce
Great capture, your work is to be commended
Fab black and white shot - you are a master - JudeC
Makes you thank how lucky we are and that we all need to do more. Love it. Touch the heart
Love the action and the expressions. Great texture and composition.
Excellent shot, looks as though these kids could have been from the 50's, you have really captured the moment, nice work! Spot on! Click!!!
A stop and think image, Even more poignant in black and white. Thanks!
Nicely placed,good subjesct and toneing.
Another great pic from your excellent social history series. You should mount an exhibition of this work in your local library ~ it would attract great interest.
Wow what more can I say..... it's all been said... sooo fantastic and I agree with Albert. helen x
Sorry It took so long to reply Thanks Alan/Jude/Dawn/Michelle/Marie/Jennn/Ken/Kim/Albert/Helen. I may try for an exhbition one day

A very good capture and thought provoking image. Well done with great work.
brilliant a great set of characters
love this shot, the cheekiness of the faces really makes it
cracking urban scene....
Hey Bernie could you do me a big favour i tried to take your advice but if you get a sec could you have a look at "happy days" in my pf. I would really appreciate it.Cheers Paul
Ok Paul No probs
The contrast between the smiles and the bleakness that black and white imagery brings out really works here. You have created a world-class image here.
Bernie this is so powerful and you can see there street side in them!! Bernie outstanding piece of photo journalism!
Very strong image - like the B&W work, does enhance the whole image.
excelent capture B&W... i like...
Love your portfolio Bernie.
What a great scene bj, love the social commentary approach, delighted to have found your pf, as I am trying to learn mono techniques, and yours is stunning, fine work, Adrian
Thanks Aidrian, I thought your PF was very impressive.
a superb B&W image.
Excellent image. I like the street wise faces on the kids.
This is for all your work Sir, you have put Bresson to shame !
Thank you Costas, your too kind, I feel priviledged to be compared to Bresson..
A classic title and a super mono to go with it. Wonderful image, amazing PF
Brilliant B/w, your attention to detail is right up there.
You more than deserve all the clicks your getting and more,,,,,,,,,and heres another one.
Superb image,I'd love to know how long is it since these pics. were taken,
Thanks Gerry, taken in the eighties
Well I think I used to look like them ! Great shot.
Hi Bernie, I really love these shots of yours. There's a strong sense of social documentary about them, and it's particulary good to see some street shots of kids like these - very rare in these ridiculously paranoid times which, for example, often mean I am prevented from photographing my own 12 year old son playing in a football match! I can see some of your shots still having a strong resonance many years hence. Keep up the good work!
Thanks Steve/Rich, got to be careful today, these type of shots are hard to get now because of all the child abuse..
NICE SHOT, LOVE YOUR OLDY WORLDLY PORTFOLIO, NICE WORK, ANDYS0707
Excellent and a great mono P/f. Will

BW and peaple make a good Picture when done right, you prove the point, well done, graet image and a perfect title
It has been said by all the others before me. Like them I love your gallery and this shot is fantastic. If it wasn't for the clothes it could so easily have been taken in the 30's. Great social documentary, keep it up.
Many thanks for your very kind comment on my gallery.
