This is an old picture I took almost 2 years ago.
Was on my way to the swimming pool, and this man was there: sitting on the side of the road and selling maize (corn). It is very common in Albania, for ambulant vendors to show up in places where pedants have their daily walks. This of course happens during summer.
p.s: it took me 10 minutes to convince the guy that the picture I was taking wasn't for bad purposes.

the note is very useful. I wished the photo was a little bit brighter, but it looks good. However, it`s an interesting photo because it tells us about the life of that man.

It's a very nice scene, Madi, well-composed to emphasize the elements of a simple life--the bicycle, the cardboard box, the tiny cooker, and the plain wall he sits against. If you could play with the tones a bit, it could be even better--maybe lighten the man so we see more detail. But I like the mood very much!
What "bad purposes" was he afraid you might use the photo for? Would it be to somehow report him to authorities? Regards, Ken.

Nice note and fine picture.
It is absolutely a balance taking "street portraits"...

Foto origjinale, po te isha une do ta prisja me ngushte nga e djathta dhe do ti jepja me shume hapsire nga krahu i majte.
E kuptoj kete shqetesimin e Aurelit por per mendimin tim Shqiperise nuk i ven e keqa nga keto lloj fotografi.
