As I was making my way around, this gal caught my eye. I went up to her and asked her what her name is. She said her name was ET because she had no home. I then gave her a care package and told her she was not junk...She told me she appreciated the tooth brush because she could brush her tongue as she had no teeth..The food she got was perfect because it was soft food, so no teeth, no problem... We spoke for a little while and as I left, she said to me, that she thought nobody loved her...I wish I could have done more...May the Lord Jesus bless her...

----------------------


Hi folks...Meet Pokahantas...Perhaps the sweetest and most appreciative of all the folks I ran into today...She had no hands and yet managed to get the food open and really she loved the kerns juice...She really appreciated the toilet paper as well...I told her she was every bit as pretty as the Indian Pokanahtas and that brought out a smile that I happened to catch... May God bless her...

--------------------------------------

Meet John...As my day was coming to and end, I passed this fellow by. He asked me for some money for food..Instead I went to my truck to see what I could put together. I had enough left over to put together one more care package...I gave it to him and talked with him for a little bit. When I was leaving, I asked him If I could take his picture. He said, yes, yes..I asked him to smile and he said he does not know how to smile. He forgot how too...I was crushed and again wished I could do more....May God bless John...

Picture made with Pentax K-7

These are from Taiwan yes?

Interesting colours. Even if it is a touch oversaturated for my taste I do like the last shot.

@Fractal-Yes Taiwan. I am continually playing(hopefully learning better way) mys ettings and adjustments to RAW in Lightroom. Thanks for looking and commenting. The shot you liked is the Honor Guard at the CKS Memorial in Taipei.

Nice image and PP Carl. I like the perspective and tilt gives sense of motion.

Good stuff as usual. I particularly like #2 that vato with the shades. Much attitude and color. Love your street work.

These are a number of older shots from Taichung (Taiwan's 3rd largest city) Park. I love street photography and the park is a must from time to time for the interesting people there. All ages, backgrounds,reasons for being there,etc.
