Italy: The streets of Rome

I had to think hard about whether I should post this picture. Was I being too intrusive? Or was it a shot that had to be taken and shown to the world? I have to admit to a sense of guilt over taking this.

Do not worry Gringo. Also I think that woman is not really so. At least I saw a report on TV a woman, exactly the same, and I swear it's the same, which followed him into an alley and took off "disguise" and was about 20 years very healthy. Moreover photography is very good. Congrats! A hug

It is hard to see these things Gringo, but that's life all over the world hey ..you captured a 'real' moment here.

Gringo, that is good that you posted this photo. That is another side of life about which we don't think very often.

Excellent photo with a very tragic story.

Hi Gringo, you have made nice photograph,based on reality. But i wonder it is in Italy hmmm? In my country beggars are normally seen on roads from every age group including men women, kids and older people..But i am really surprised Italy is developed one...but may be this poor lady have some bad time.

I understand about your prevention from posting the photo, but in the end, you just only are showing a reality, a hard reality, unfortunately. Regards,

Hello Gringo,

Grateful for your visit.
The photo is one of the sad faces of life. Part of the reality of the world, unfortunately.

Hug.

I agree with Perth, it is life no matter where you are.

Dear Gringo:
Many times the photographer is required to stir consciences to allegations he does with his camera .. Sometimes the drive and weighs about consciousness, but I think it forced the world to see all the realities in order to change it, which is not taken for nonexistent when there are many realities around us ... Just a little constructive criticism .. I had submitted the photo in black and white .. Forgive the length of my comment .. Very good job. A greeting. Helen :)
