    hey all...
    heres a first from my street shots that i started on a few months back...
    shot on a cold winter day in January...
    i found the two kids huddled in a back alley, trying to warm themselves by burning some coal...
    it was pretty sad.. they never had a roof o'er there head...what i did do was get em a hot meal...

    you should of told them to not look at the camera and go back to what they were doing so it doesnt look so staged.. but great photo none the less

    I don't comment on your photo's much, Mansi, but I've yet to see anything I don't like yet. I just can't always think of something to say. Kinda like now really. I just want to point that out. This is a good photograph and it also has an emotional edge.

    Do you mind if I ask though, how do you feel when you take these shots? I'd feel strange doing it. Sort of like I'm profiting (not financially) from their problems. I'm not having a go, I curious. I'd love to be able to take these kind of photographs but I don't think I'd feel comfortable if I tried.

    Keep up the good work.
