This poor man appears to be invisible to most people just walking past him. Because he is blind and with no hands, he can only do so much. People always complain about not having enough. I guess sometimes we need to count our blessings.

It looks like one of those Magnun Photos. I think B&W will give more impact

What a moving image. The passing people only help to make your title oh so true. Bump to a ten.

Wow, what a shot.

Wonderful portrait. Don't know how busy it was around him, but it would have been nice to see this without the people passing by.

wow. I'd love to hear some of the stories this man must have. 8!

Emotive shot. I hope you made a contribution after getting his image.
In some small way I feel like this image is a bit exploitive. JMO, and I know all the legal mumbo jumbo about his being in public, etc...but still.

As for the image qualities I'm finding the background just a little distracting. Perhaps the people walking by add to the context of this man's plight, but a step or two to the left would make this a stronger portrait shot IMO. The exposure and details of the image subject are very well done.

Good luck in the challenge.
