Challenge has finished
Submit a portrait that breaks the rules. -- There are many highly-regarded principles of portrait photography. If you master them, you are nearly guaranteed to produce a fine portrait. However, learning and mastering all these principles can be difficult, and you risk turning out mediocre and bland images. -- Rather, for this challenge, disregard or modify the rules of portraiture. You may come up with something new and fresh, but also be aware that you also risk making an image that looks ridiculous. Unconventional portraits are often spontaneous, and they tend to emphasize style or attitude. Not having to abide by rules makes this challenge simultaneously easy for the beginning photographer, and exceptionally difficult for an established photographer in the marketplace.

it was early in the morning today, i was walking back home, carryin' some bread for breakfast. entering my neighborhood, i came accross this young boy, who was carrying a dirty sac over his shoulder, searching for garbage here and there... we crossed paths right outside my passage door, i noticed his eyes as they were locked on the bread, and it didn't take me long to figure out why? asked him if he wanted some bread, he nodded his head and i told him to sit down -- my mom was somewhat concerned about this, because there have been incidents in the city where such young boys have been aprehended by the police for theft and robbery, but i was content, primarily because i'd seen the hunger in his eyes, 'starvation' was what his facial expression suggested... not agression or rage...
