Daily Deviation

Given 2013-10-06
Hard Times by ~DouglasHumphries The Suggester says: "All the writings around emphasize the sorrow of the man. This is a timeless photo, speaking of crisis time and human condition. It tells a story that we all feel". ( Suggested by Canankk and Featured by myraincheck )

I would like to be your agent. :iconyesyesyesplz: 

My pleasure, it is such an amazing moment. If you did not capture it, we could not see and feel it.
I just wanted more people can feel the 'Humanism' here.

Very nice shot. I love some details that were captured - 'dying breed', the poster, the tear on the man's jacket - all contribute suitably to the theme. This certainly evoked some empathy within me.
