Great capture and words to go with it. The skin shows this person's battle scars. But it looks like he's still laughing. GReat!

Amazing. A perfect moment which can only be taken with a pocket cam. You did it! Oh wow ... I really love this work! Fine fine fine ^^ ...
10 Jun 2010 5:30am
Disturbing, perplexing, provocative....in other words, another wonderful image, Sharon ! :-)

FUN!!! Really amazing shot!
10 Jun 2010 6:39am
Suggestive image, with a bit of mysterious air :)
10 Jun 2010 6:51am
excellent framing and point of view
10 Jun 2010 7:53am
splendid and impressive at the same time, exelent contrast and tones
Oh, i was on this kind of message with my yesterday's post and love your words & image to express this. His cool posture is in such beautiful contradiction with the pain we can guess... It moves me a lot, plus your presence in his back, so close & respectful...
10 Jun 2010 7:58am
you always manage to find excellent shots again you have not failed
10 Jun 2010 8:51am
Oh this is heart breaking.
10 Jun 2010 10:29am
Another great image. The composition is excellent, allthough it must be a snapshot. The words and your motive makes it very moving.
10 Jun 2010 10:55am
a strong and moving picture...life is hard !
10 Jun 2010 11:40am
A wonderful evocative image you have captured Sharon! Super composition! Bravo! ;-)
10 Jun 2010 11:53am
Scarred arm, scarred heart...
10 Jun 2010 12:30pm
Very nice! Well seen.
10 Jun 2010 12:41pm
wonderful street capture. love the tones.
10 Jun 2010 1:28pm
Powerful image, and a great quote to go along with it.
10 Jun 2010 1:39pm
this is just excellent!
10 Jun 2010 1:40pm
voila toute la magie dont tu es capable sharon, nous montrer la vie tel quelle est, avec pudeur et respect, bravo^^
10 Jun 2010 2:06pm
quite a witty image at first and then you start to think about it a bot more and maybe its quite a dark and unhappy image- either way it gets you thinking and thats good!
10 Jun 2010 2:36pm
Poignant but real! Poignant cause it's real!!! How many heartbreaking stories this is telling! Simple yet powerful composition!
10 Jun 2010 3:18pm
Strong and clever stuff . . that activist quote from Mr Rollins suits this so well !
10 Jun 2010 3:33pm
Awfully tough for some people to move on.
10 Jun 2010 3:55pm
Great "on the spot' capture... what is the person doing there? Is there a smile on his face? :)
10 Jun 2010 4:27pm
This is a great capture! Says so much.
10 Jun 2010 5:37pm
A brutal shot though we can't see her (I suspect she is a woman)... the scars/wrinkle on the shoulder, on her skin... she seems thin, too thin... and her attitude, as she were truly relaxing (like most of us can do in a bench, in a garden) contrasts so toughly with the place... dirty, hard.
A remarquable angle (surpringly, she is smiling) and a powerful documentary image. Bravo Sharon.
10 Jun 2010 6:57pm
quite a sad scene.. but at least he looks laidback in that pose.. :) nice candid shot.. :)
10 Jun 2010 8:47pm
A powerful image. You would think she would be sad and yet she's smiling. The scarred are tougher than we imagine, perhaps.
10 Jun 2010 9:28pm
Nice shot, I like the perspective here. The depth is very nice here.

"They say you've got to lose a couple fights to win / It's hard to tell from where I'm sitting / They say that this is where the fun begins / I guess it's time that I was quitting" (The Avett Brothers)
What can I say, Sharon? An amazing photograph. Somehow sad & so masterly composed because showing the respect to people that seem to run out of luck. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
11 Jun 2010 7:25am
that is a great find....you photographic eye is watching everywhere!
11 Jun 2010 8:33am
Awesome photograph - i can't say more.
11 Jun 2010 9:01am
a bit sad to see this, yet it seems unreal. great framing and nice "pose" here!
11 Jun 2010 3:56pm
@Liang: Unfortunately I see this sort of thing more than anyone really should. The homeless situation here is bad, but then I guess that most major cities have similar situations. Generally I don't like to shoot these people, but for me it was because of her position on the ground that made it interesting. She was right out of her mind, perhaps high on crack or something else, and causing quite the scene at this bus/train station. When I took this she has just settled down.
Fabulous. Your eye for this shot is superb. Nicely captured.
11 Jun 2010 4:31pm
But still full of laughter!
11 Jun 2010 6:54pm
11 Jun 2010 10:27pm
Very hard life indeed. She stays at the lowest level, lying down at the level of the street.
12 Jun 2010 7:38am
12 Jun 2010 9:35am
nice and very original capture
12 Jun 2010 6:05pm
Great catch !
12 Jun 2010 6:24pm
Excellent street capture. The gov logo gives it an extra twist.
12 Jun 2010 7:41pm
Really like it. The logo "canada" give a great touch!
12 Jun 2010 8:19pm
a very "strong" picture sharon ,
i'm come back ,i enjoy to see your picture !!
12 Jun 2010 11:26pm
Your images are always charged with emotion, Sharon, and this one has caused a physical reaction to the emotion that I'm feeling. Well done. Excellent pairing with the quote, too.
13 Jun 2010 4:49am
Great picture and excellent framing ! Well seen !
13 Jun 2010 9:55am
perfect street shot ... good mood
13 Jun 2010 12:59pm
13 Jun 2010 1:49pm
So powerful! The frailty of her (?) arm against all that concrete. Very good work Sharon. You impress over and over again!
13 Jun 2010 4:25pm
Powerful..painful image. Love how so little...tells so much of a atory.
13 Jun 2010 4:59pm
The perfect moment. Awesome picture.
13 Jun 2010 5:02pm
I work as a Commercial Photographer here in Singapore. Just loved the image composition and photographic expressions. Running a photo studio here in Singapore, we do mainly professional headshots. It's great to see other works outside the studio environment. Thanks for sharing.
13 Jun 2010 7:23pm
Love your frame, just a head, an harm, and we can easily guess all the story which takes place on this ground. The textures speak so well about hard life. We could have been the one who completely ignored this human presence where our feet are used to walking so fast. A grand photo, Sharon.
13 Jun 2010 8:32pm
thank you for sharing such a powerful image.
13 Jun 2010 9:02pm
You always have ideas of extraordinary photos.
Always of beautiful particular moments.
14 Jun 2010 7:40am
brilliant. especially the composition with the word Canada leading it to her. lots of people think this doesn't exist in Canada.
thank you for the quote. words i needed to see today.
15 Jun 2010 3:18am
loved the composition and the tones!
15 Jun 2010 1:57pm
17 Jun 2010 8:09am
excellente composition !
17 Jun 2010 9:20pm
This one is so odd and so wonderful I cant stop staring at it ;) Nice capture!
18 Jun 2010 10:36pm
Gorgeous image, and the quote is fantastic too.
