It is my unequivocally right opinion that if we had teachers like this one in our classrooms, kids won't desert school. Visual aid is not just about projecting images on a screen, you know...
Superbe photo, Mario..!Tiens, je n'étais pas au courent de cette belle activité: FESTI-VENT SUR GLACE (Saint-Placide, Qc)Merci pour cette belle collaboration.
OMG...!!!That guy is taking no jokes about sharing grub.Great Take..!!
From now on your name is:Buzz-Ansel-Lightyear.Enough said.
papa natas: Shooting homeless, but this time under a new, elegant light, that only a few with money can afford....Just what they need...An elegant light portrait to alleviate their situation.Ha!!
I love when you talk dirty.Seriously, my bad.This wasn't supposed to be sent to you.Thanks for your sense of humor.:)
To PhotoKhan: I tell you, in that night, there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. (Luke 17:34-35, KJV)
"...But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death..."Revelation 21:8Great picture!!!
All those above mentioned illnesses, are NOT particular to the Hobo.They also dwell in the minds of very high paid public service people. The Department of Defense, for instance...Sorry...I couldn't restrain.I never intended to describe a romantic image of the Homeless or the Hobo. All I wanted to say was that USING them as entry for a contest is disgusting.And we better let this subject go.Thanks for your kind feedback.
I NEVER sustained that.On the contrary:I'm AGAINST that circus.PLEASE...READ MY ANSWERS...!!And I'm not coming back to you.And you are an airline pilot?SCARY....very SCARY...
To Under The Sun:Yeah, and why not a Mercedes while at it? One does NOT need to extremes to help them. Just some cash, clothing, aspirins, etc.You know what I mean, don't you? Mind you, there was this man, not looking dirty or pitifully, asking for coin on this corner in Montreal for the last 20 years. One day he announced, with a banner, that he was going to retire by the end of the week. He was 65. You should see all the media attention, the well wishers and the farewell gifts he received from commuters.Am I getting through?
I knew it because THEY told me so.And my point is that yes, albeit an unspecified number of homeless are going through a harsh time in their lives, there are those for whom THIS is a choice of life.As you mentioned : Free Will.
Keep on looking at the stars, PhotoKhan.Meanwhile, PLEASE read my text again.I am NOT a religious person.
Dear KariP and Photokhan.Those we call HOMELESS today are the cast the Great Depression inaugurated: The Hobo: An American Persona that is been glorified in all types of media. Mind you, the Hobo NEVER feels sorry about himself. He feels proud to live outside the mainstream. He needs no pity or humane approach from society. He detach himself from ANY social conventionality. He is NOT miserable, but he wants to remain in the shadows, non visible, non accounted for. Therefore ANY effort, be it social, religious or political, has no direct impact on his condition. I've worked with them in occasions, and they even refuse shelter or food if they are obliged to say a prayer or to listen mass.And once I saw this guy giving them bibles...(!) Do you want to help? Give them a buck or two, a shirt, a pair of jeans, shoes, vitamins, cold medicine. And don't expect to tame them with gifts, PLEASE.
Shooting homeless, but this time under a new, elegant light, that only a few with money can afford....Just what they need...An elegant light portrait to alleviate their situation.Ha!!
garyknrd: Nice pics, I think I am going to spend next summer there, for some birding.
Well, look at that new entry from Aaron Draper:Shooting homeless, but this time under a new, elegant life that only a few with money can afford....Just what they need...An elegant light to alleviate their situation.Ha!!
Ah...Le culte à l'enfant...
Of course. It's a known fact, especially for someone like me who was born in a neighboring country to Guatemala. I know those images since I was a child. I unequivocally understand your point of view. Then there's the part where you mentioned HELPING those people in some way, as limited as it would be, but HELP nevertheless. But Mr. Fish is USING them to enter a photo fair, as a carny whose stand shows Human Misery, just to impress lookers, not to help. That's my point.
Yeah,Maybe you can find the Bird of Misery and take a "nice" pic too.
papa natas: Well I'm glad someone thought of recycling those old rubber horns.
Thanks, Just Ed..!!Then again I wish to ask for your help.Since the Smartphone and small camera are meant to be kept close to the eye, is that hook designed for the ear?
