photoblog image Keeping warm

Keeping warm

Spotted this man adjusting to the cold weather, he seems to have all it takes to survive this winter. If you look closely you will see what I mean, he has a cap, then a winter hat, earphones, gloves, 2 or 3 layers of clothes, then a jacket and most importantly a cigarette and now I am wandering what's in that bag!

I like much this type of accidental photos. I like the use of the B&W in her.
The b/w and the blur around the man is almost making this shot have a fairytale kind of look smile Nice shot - I love street shots and this is a really good one!
Dotun you can publish your pic to a magazine.... Dotun reporter, yeah !! A great photo here and a cool b&w. Solitude and desolation in our cities.

No Dotun doesn't wanna be a reporter, he wants to be rich one day (or maybe is). So maybe he should consider becoming chief reporter? tongue

Excellent capture.

Here by us in winter they have all the clothing and then stand around a fire in a drum - this guy misses the fire.

Don't know if this gentleman is a street fella, homeless, but he is definitely one of the "brighter, bolder" ones. Well captured, Doyun.

hi dotnot you take some breathtaking pictures.Each shot you take evryday is just great. Have you ever considered a magazine or putting some of these shots in a frame, make a card or something. You could make some money. YOu are very talented in what started off as a hobby.

It looks as if he's also wearing thermal long johns, either that or very white socks. He looks so very thin. I hope his winter isn't too hard.

Oh, and it's a good picture too. smile
