How much I agree with the above remarks, Lin: all too often we take for granted what we have and enjoy, and this is a reminder that not all are so fortunate.
An excellent shot of this elderly street performer.

I hope that the thought that someone actually wanted to take his photo gave him a bit of a boost, Lin, he certainly deserved it. Well captured. Carol

Very well captured image of this man who has so little.
You wonder what thoughts are going on in his head
and if his whole life has been one of poverty and pain.

At least he looks warm and well groomed - still has a pride in his appearance. Well taken Lin.
