Entry Description

Another Day is a group of four pictures captured in real life where a disabled homeless man living day after day by begging people for food and money.

Story

He could not walk on feet, instead he used the two hands dragging his body to beg for money. His craw from station to station in the market collecting recycle items and left over food. His body cover with dirt, raw blood from the people cleaned the fishes. Another day for an unfortunate life, a man, a homeless has nothing but sorrow day after day. Life liked a spectrum full of colors where I feel fortunate to have the present better than other people. There is always hope and believe in a better day...
