An old cinema that had long since seen better days and fallen into derelict disrepair, having briefly been converted to a bingo hall. An old man passing with his head looking down with disregard for the lost bulding and past times. Slow shutter speed used to enhance the passing of the old man but still clear enough to show him carrying bags, representing his struggle.

'Eyes down' seems strangely appropriate.

Such a despondant image....but done with subtlety, pathos and sympathy...a really very impressive image...

Thanks for the comments .. there is something about meaningful candid street shots that seem more powerful than anything you set up - he just appeared and did all the work.
