Another Day in Paradise on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Another Day in Paradise on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

For some, Algarve is an european paradise. Beaches, woman, country-side, marvellous landscapes, great gastronomy, fresh fish, the heat, the golf fields, I could keep on and on..

For others, their dreams are shattered. They are dismissed because of their age. They are abandoned by their friends and family.

They live in another world, not this reality we know. They live in a virtual reality created by alcoholic addiction and drugs. No food or little food.
They can ask for a cigarette. And some of them are gentle. "Thank you, lady.".
Some read newspapers sitting on these benchs.
Some pass their lifes on these benchs.

Take me back to those good old days, when one could have a nap on a park bench without risking to get a photograph spread around the internet. :D
Beware, nowadays there's always a digital camera voyeur lurking about!
Big brother gained a few more eyes.

Not exactly BW, apart from that it is a great photo. Almost as if he's on a lit de parade.

Triste é encarar essa realidade no nosso cotidiano. Independente do país em que vivemos.
Querer ajudar e não poder. Dá uma sensação de impotência que chega a doer na alma.
Bom final de semana pra ti.

A luz que incide sobre o homem acrescenta dramatismo à imagem. Gosto muito do tratamento, da tonalidade geral da foto.

Even though it is quite a tough view of reality, the photograph is beautiful. Very nice tones, and well taken.

Some of these people, sometimes what they only ask for, even if they don't say it, it's for some seconds of conversation. Or even, a simple smile. It is surprising how grateful they are for this.
