Photographer's Note

I saw this homeless old man the previous day when he was having his siesta and framed a shot... The next day i again saw the oldman...this time he was sitting at the last step of the staircase...I felt that his sitting in the last step was conveying in some manner the actual position life has offered him... Though i think the shot came out very well I'm still confused if I made the right decision in photographing this man's stature... The question that rattles my mind - Would I like someone to take a picture of me, if i were in such state?... Guys I'm initiating a seperate discussion under the title - Photographing Pain & Poverty ???... Please take your time to join the discussion... as for this picture your comments and critiques (photographically) are more than welcome!
