Pass me by...

By Platchet
Taken on the streets of Dublin earlier this year. Hundreds of people must have passed this poor beggar on their way to the big rugby match that day. I snapped this quickly with my compcat as I looked back. The photo looked B+W at the time and I just had to snap it. Nothing added or taken away, just boosted the contrast.
Something different and thought I'd share it.

It seems horrible that people walk on when others seek help but I'm sure more would offer a little help if they could be sure that help would be used in the right way if know you what I mean.

I also like this image Gaz, from his shadow on the pavement to the lines in the pavement itself. The passers by make it that bit more interesting. Smile

Good image.
