21_F.gif mariuca I was walking along the street with my camera slung around my neck, this charming homeless man took one glance at me and said "take a photo of me" who was I to refuse. He did the posing and I pressed the button, it was a quick snapshot to say the least. I'm glad he stopped me because up to that point I didn't have a decent image for the FS and I took this on the 2nd last day of the month...I must find him again and show him the image.


_________________________________________
Thank you people, it's always a pleasure to win a ribbon in a FS, I am quite surprised to say the least, I had 21.gif 3DsArcher picked as the blue or red, or that Otto guy :)

BTW, I called this "A glimmer of hope" because despite the fact that he was homeless, he came across as a very happy man.

Reminds me of Michael O'Brien's "Hard Ground" work, though not quite as dark. Great street portrait.
