The begger who usually has a smile was sitting with a young girl. His hands are deformed by disease, hers young and supple. He lives every day, sitting, waiting, hoping for some left over food and a few rupees. Sometimes life is so unfair, yet this man smiles. I think how can I ever be unhappy, when I have so much more.

I very much like the way you introduced this picture. I suppose you are travelling and your aim is to catch as more as you can instant life and meaningful people. So, I suppose your priority is small files (this one 16Ko), not enabling high photographic quality. But your comments and atmosphere are happily compensating.

This is a very moving photo indeed. It's pretty hard to rate this photo though, as most of your work, due to the fact that it's very small and compressed. If we put the compression factor aside, I truly adore this shot!

Back in time, back in space...
What I like the most about your shots, Gloria, the way you shoot, to be more precise, is that you're always concerned about what surrounds you, never losing your eye or spirit for some kind of trigger-happy shooting frenzy.
These two laps, side by side, show the complexity of a world which eludes me, though you contribute to make (tiny) parts of it more tangible, if not more understandable.
Too bad I didn't check your multiple travels and comment your pictures more often before, but such is (my) life. Besides, I guess that deploring one's past (in)actions is not the right thing to do to move on. Working on getting more open and curious is certainly a better option, don't you think? ;-)
Whatever you do, keep doing it with all you heart...
