The guy reading on the steps treats this as norm, as do the others. Well captured statement of the times you live in Marian. Take care.

It's something that we are coming to regard as normal in the major cities of the world. Looking at his face, I get the impression that he is not comfortable with it. Thought-provoking.

I agree -- very thought provoking and visually stunning. This is a superb example of photojournalism. In addition to the subject matter and your composition, the B&W tones here are perfect.
