thanks nomade. i like it too. but i have this frustration that all the picture i have posted lately are old, from last summer. this days i don't have the time to get out and just wondering the streets. but, this weekend are some interesting events and i hope to have something after :)
anyway.. glad to have your opinion on this one too.

My goodness, this is powerful.

There is so much emotion here, feels like a tragedy has happened and we are winessing grief.

An incredibly moving photograph

Strong portrait, the eyes and the expression is so sharp and powerful.
Very nicely converted to black and white.
Great job!

A sad image. They don't look happy.

Thanks for visiting my site. I love your post about Venice very beautiful.

This shot is very moving and even though they don’t look happy I feel the love between them.

oh. thank you all for your visit and opinions.
about the picture.. i need suddenly to elucidate the context of it. the two characters were indeed beggars, but they weren't that sad at all. what you can't see in the picture is that the one who doesn't look in the camera was stripping a banana.. one of the two bananas that i gave them in order to let me take a picture of them.
when i posted the photo my intentions wasn't to manipulate the viewers, it just stated very well what i felt that day inside. just that.
but, after all, this is the downside of one's own interpretation of an image.
