Look at me
* 2006-01-23 oochappan

Look at me

India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai

I'm a poor mental handicapped Tamil man but I can read in your eyes your empathy in my sober life
but sometimes I am afraid by seeing so much isolation, affection turned to stone, apathetic greed,
measured friendship, desires and dreams exploited commercially, .... sometimes you make me afraid .....

Tell me,
who is the most poor,
the one living in his illusions of self-satisfaction,
or
me ?

Look at me ...... Look at me ...

Finepix? You are kidding. Pros with expensive equipment would just love to have this shot in their portfolio. Well done indeed.

Voted. Combination of word and image is poetic justice begging to be heard and seen. Excellent portrait.

Indeed Vipin, I noticed the guy ... asked Anand to go for him,
then I showed Anand how I approach a portrait,
I mostly tend to go straight for the eyes,
a bit more daring but he allowed me.
Fine to put the link,I like the expression of the man in Anand's approach as much.
