    i was a bit taken with emotion when i saw this homeless man yesterday. regardless of his circumstance, he took time to drape his cart with flags, celebrate and show pride in his country.

    It's an arresting image, once again you show what a good eye you have for seeing this kind of thing. Very nice. :thumbup:

    Wow Jon, what an emotional photo. Even though he is homeless, he still loves his country no matter what. Great eye, and very well captured.

    Excellent shot. IMO this is one where selective color would really make a statement.

    It sure is arresting! Framed very well.
    But I wouldn't have known he is homeless if you had not mentioned it. Perhaps a shot from the front would have conveyed the 'homeless' part well?

    Regardless, its a great frame! My favourite thus far; from you. :thumbup:

    wonder if he is a vet???

    i would bet the farm, he is.......great shot jon.....

    if he is a vet..then the caption could be, "thru it all, he hasnt forgotten his country...."

    Very nice shot indeed, perhaps popping colour on the flag might add something. Ernie

    I disagree with a lot of the opinions about this one and selective coloring. DON'T TOUCH IT JON! This one is perfect the way it is. The beauty of b&w gives this shot a fantastic feel and this capture speaks to me of a time long forgotten. As always keep up the good work.
