Beggar

This photo has haunted me ever since I took it in 2015 while in Budapest, Hungary.  Our traveling group for the day had gathered in a large open area before heading into a nearby cathedral.  Out of no where this woman in old dirty clothing appeared beside me.  She never spoke,  just passed by searching the crowd with sad dark eyes, hoping for a coin or two to be dropped into an old tin cup.   As she turned away I snapped one shot of her bent over using a cane to help steady her every step.  The modern drainage system and her cane are the only signs that this photo wasn’t taken years ago.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
