> Poverty - a grey tale ( B&W )

Challenge #3 in the Photography like a tale series. Hosted by RazvanRO.
Challenge has finished
Even in the most luxurious places on Earth we can find poor peoples. Our happiness should take into account the grey smile of poverty. We manage to handle huge and expensive cameras and lenses while other people like us struggle to get a slice of bread. I know that for most of those in poverty taking a shot is sometimes disgraceful so please avoid that and try making it soft and grey, not dark.

I gave this dude ¥5 and asked to take his picture to which he said yes. I should have taken more than one shot for that much money!
