Interesting that he can afford to own and run a mobile phone.

Lovely dog. I always feel sorry for the animals on the streets.
And you never know these days which are the genuine needy and those making a fast buck. Complicated times.

I agree too.

I can just imagine this sequence starting with him telling the dog, "Lemme just check how many hits my latest YouTube vid has got".

I confess I had just the same thought about the mobile phone !! I think for me however the expression on the dogs face speaks volumes of the whole situation.

Do dogs grow to look like their masters, or is it the other way around? I can never be sure......

Great set of images. When my son was staying down in London he noticed a number of Pro beggars. They always had something to give them away. He and a friend spotted one leaving his pitch one evening and followed him (they had noticed his shoes). He went into a public toilet with his bags and a little while later came out dressed in a city suit, still with bags. The only thing he had not changed were his shoes , well they were by Gucci.

To be honest - I don't like publishing photos of beggars at all. Whatsoever. Sort of a too easy target for street photography. In my country it is illegal to publish photos of beggars and drunk people. I would just reconsider if I were you - I don't mean to be putting you down for it - you may not have thought about it.

I capture life good and bad and not just the pleasant ones. all photography in public places is legal in the UK as it should be in your country. I'm certainly not going to change the way I photograph real life.

Hi again. It is not illegal to photograph them here either.

What it says in the law is about being respectful as to what you publish.

There's nothing disrespectful about photographing life as it is and some of the worlds most powerful photographs would never have seen the light of day if the photographers had this sort of attitude.The editor of this site has voted on this image so perhaps he's not being respectful in doing so in your eyes?

I also forgot to mention that it's also received a user award so perhaps the attitude to photographers on this site are wrong and you are correct?

Thank you for the private message.
I am sorry for my comment and I did not mean to insult you.
The photographers on this site are correct and I am wrong.
Because it is a matter of being right or wrong, and not about opinion.
