Daily Deviation

Given 2006-06-26
Lady of the slum by ~bevels I think anyone whom makes photos of the street and the inhabitants of the street almost always avoids eye contact. Not this deviant. Something about her condition comes through loud and clear. Poignant but very well done. ( Suggested by xxPaperflowersxx and Featured by cweeks )

It makes me happy to see that she has a companion. My heart kind of breaks for people like this. Makes me proud, too.... to see how people can carry on in even the hardest of times.

Beautiful, sweet, and a little sad.

its so sad and moving, but in a different way to other similar pictures. maybe it is in the way you have captured a moment that looks so real and unposed...

Thanks for taking the time to feel this image.. I consider it a very lucky moment. She was smiling most of the time but in conversation as she described something her persona changed and I saw her face and clicked, the dog licking it's chops was a very very lucky element.

This looks more like a painting than a photograph... but it's a damn good photograph... really captures the moment...

This is Bangkok? I knew it existed, and I've seen part of it... but not much... I'm not much of a Bangkok person I guess... East and South Thailand are my favourite :)

Anyways, great pic :D

Sounds like you've done a bit of travelling yourself.. I'm a kiwi as well but have lived overseas (mostly in asia) for the last decade. Seems like us NZers can't sit still ay!

Enjoy and thanks for the comments, i really appreciate them.

Bevels.
