Taken at Old Delhi (India) area on Sunday when most of the shops remain closed.
We keep complaining for not having this comfort, not having that luxury...
Do we really have right to complain!!
many people anyhow manage their basic meal of one or two times and sleep where ever they
Shouldn't we be thankful to God for whatevr we have!
Thanks for reading. :)

une scène de vie, bien mis en valeur, grace à une belle composition de l'image.
Le noir et blanc rajoute bien à l'ambiance de cette photo.

Une très belle image avec un tratement N&B qui en accentue la force et l'impacte.
Etonnant qu'elle n'ait pas plus de point.

good journalistic work. Sure there's a darker side of life and we must be thankful for not having the better share of it, because it can happen to anyone anytime.
The choice of black and wide is part and parcel of the image.
Thanks and best wishes

Thought provoking indeed. You've caught what his situation appears to be, very well. Love the way the mono conversion that draws attention straight to the subject and all the surrounding grittiness superbly. Well presented, TFS

Hey Shadan, thanks for sharing this moving image reminding us of what we have to be thankful for. Also very good use of contrast and composition and overall textures. It contributes a lot to the emotion to be able to see the man's bare dirty feet and get a glimpse of his face as he is sleeping. Also, including the surrounding area adds to this man's desolation and makes me feel the need to say a prayer for this man and others like him.

a very stark and grim image of true poverty. Black and white was just the right choice for it, also. I like the grittiness and the heavy shadows that add to the mood. And you are so right - it is always good to find something to be grateful for. Thank you for reminding us of that. Kindest regards,
