Saw this couple on Victoriei Boulevard the other day. Passed them by and then returned to take the photo. Took only one, so as not to bother them too much. The lady smiled afterwards.

This is an excellent shot Raluca.
The people look very poor but full of character and determination. They're clearly setting out on a journey to somewhere, and your shot makes us wonder where they're going.
Its an intriguing shot, and very well taken.

The mood has been well captured.The rest before going another stretch of road with their meaer possession to a destination that is unknown.Possibly their ticket on the suitcase on the right or a map.
Poor but proud people.
Good documentary shot.

That eye contact! :D It's a pity we have a hard time finding persons not afraid or unconfortable of being photographed. This picture is a winner for the eye contact, very powerful.

Hello Raluca. The people in the photo seem to be poor. Perhaps the luggage is their whole possession. It requires overcoming to accept such people. The most difficult for the photographer is the direct confrontation by view contact. Before it most photographers have fear. This is probably the reason, why zooms are used. It requires courage to near-happen completely near to the people. This is here dr case. Therefore the photo became also very good. Many greetings, Wolfgang.
