I am posting this picture in response to Peter West Carey‘s tips on Travel Photography on how to shoot Poor. Peter seems to have traveled to Nepal, that’s where I am from, and have taken some shots of the porters. They were nice shots.
Here I go – I found this poor outside the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) in Chicago, IL USA. (This picture was taken last winter)
I really appreciated that guys hard work. When we visited the tower, he was playing that saxophone (he must have started hours earlier). He was still playing it when we visited back two hours later. It was wild cold. I can’t tolerate the cold breeze of Chicago in winter – but it didn’t seem to have affected him in anyways. People were watching him from the distance, and only a few were making any monetary appreciations. I bet he hardly makes a day’s living playing it.
