Tank You

Posted by Hub Pacheco (Pasay, Philippines) on 19 February 2012 in People & Portrait.

I saw this man on my way up the Gil Puyat LRT 1 station. He appears to be a traveler who's down on his luck. He is well-dressed. His bags are beside him and yet he's asking for alms. I can never be sure if he's sincere or not, nevertheless, after taking this photo, I went back down and gave him some spare change. Safe travels back home, wherever it may be.

well,we're not really sure if he's just pretending. But honestly,i have a BIG heart to such situation where it calls for our heart. The woman might have been comprehending what was written..joke..I guess she was just a bit surprised though I believe she had shed something to the man. Well, good for your great shot Hub, on your own way you showed this great piece. keep it up!
photography is one of my hobbies,though I know this talent(or skill,rather?) requires a lot of time.--maybe as long as we're happy doing it,i know i can make it..hih
good job!

he's sincere or not...it no longer matter... no wrong or right...it all comes down to one thing...DOING OUR PART, to give when we can, to extend help when we're able...if they decide to waste our help, it's their choice..giving once is never a sign of being abused....and If we're in this guy's situation, it will be heartbreaking and total helplessness to know that people refuse to give us some help...:(
