Indifference On The Street.

On Princes Street. People staying well away while the beggar prays for money. Of course I did give him money!

Oh this saddens me. I would call the photo "indifference". Powerful!

Great capture. I've never seen an image quite like this. What makes it especially poignant is the harrowing emotional state of the man against the background of seemingly oblivious people. Well done!

Powerful image, and sad, and interesting because there is not just one homeless person but two, with the person further up the street.

Love your composition & social commentary, and your choice to go BW. I don't know this man's story but I do know that professional beggars bring in lots of money... it's pretty much a 'job' in some locations.

Thanks mcannavo! Yes I do know that some people do that. Not in this case though. You get familiar with the regular ones and to find out about their lives by communication. x

Stone pavement - stone hearts. Not yours. Remarkable - I've never seen a beggar prostrate in that way. The ultimate humiliation for him? There but for the Grace of God go you or I, rings true here.

Congrats on your Win! Very good photo, although an ugly theme that shows exactly what your title states. Excellent emotional transfer (which is what photography is all about).
