Such a contrast between that richly adorned staircase and the woman. Superb shot.

Thank you, Fiona.
Normally, I do not like to take photographs of acute poverty such as hers, but the colours were so pretty, I couldn't not.

This shot speaks volumes.
For some reason I want to cradle the woman.

@ Mary- thank you. The one thing that never fails to move me is a homeless woman doing nothing. If she is begging, she is still in control, but women like her have lost everything.
