oh, this picture makes me incredibly sad. i hope he really isn't as sad as he seems.

Layrayski said...

mirage2g--- Haha that's one way of looking at it!

tammie--- I hope it didn't make you too sad. You know what? I feel guilty. I had this sort of pledge to myself not to take photos of people visibly in need (usual photos of hungry, sad) if I can't do anything about it. It makes great photograph but I feel it would make me feel horrible afterwards. This is why I can't be a writer and a photojournalist. Hehe I hate making waves.

I can see why you'd want to take tha pledge but yet I think we need more pictures of people in pain or needing of assistance in some way. It's always good to be reminded that there are people out there who need help. It puts my own petty problems into perspective. It keeps me from being too selfish. (I hope.)

my heart sank when i saw this photo. i keep wondering what this man was thinking about, or was he just waiting for something or someone?

tammie-- I guess to be able to take photos of people in distress (not that my photo applies) takes a kind of ruthlessness, I think. But you're right, maybe there's a middle ground. Take a photo of the hungry and afterwards feed them. :)

kayni-- Maybe the next time I see him, I'm gonna ask him why he looked so glum/sad/whatever. Would you believe I saw him again? Oh yeah Butuan is so small its in the realm of the possible. Hehe
