rest a while

by K10D

an old man sitting on a plastic bag which contains fabric to act as a cushion. He only manages to walk several yards at a time before needing to sit and rest. I see him daily, following the same routine. I admire his will to get out and see and be seen.

Extreme contrast could not be avoided.

Great eye for a shot that tells a real story.

If I may add to your admiration, he also must have taken extra will with pride

to prepare and dress so impeccably well.

Thanks for sharing the shot and the story.

I guess some people can stop and try to understand whilst others show no care.

A wonderful shot. Very nicely accomplished with a moving story behind it.
