Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I love this photograph and that I used your this particular art work in my non-profit in-class English project! Here is the link to my video: [link]

I’ve given you credit on my works cited, of course, and I will also list the link to this photograph in my video description.

Please let me know if you have a problem with this and I will take down the video as soon as I am done presenting this next week. :D

Thank you so much!

And you notice that it looks like one of the people walking by has their wallet in their back pocket..... but she gets over-looked. Very thought provoking.

Good picture but would be shocked if someone says that poverty is no long around.

I live there and I see this kind of thing just about everyday, but to see it in a photo like this is something else altogether. It makes me see and digest what's really going on.

It is always the most sad when you see either children or elderly people begging because you know that it is often almost impossible for them to find money in another way :(

this saddens me to, but theres so many such cases in the world and not all those who beg are in such a desolate conditon..so
am I cruel to think we shouldn't pour out our sympathies whenever we view such an image?

or at least, think twice. and dont let your emotions take over you.
