    I see this lady everyday on my way to work. I wonder where she gets her pills from? Agree with John, nice framing!

    I think the image is well shot, the framing and the story behind it is very appropriate. However, I think the ethical dilemna of photographing homeless people is much more relevant than the photographic merits of this photograph.

    Despite what Eric Kim and John Free say on this subject I think it's perfectly valid to shoot the homeless, destitute, dead-drunk, drug addicts & prostitutes on the street. Street photography is meant to be a form of social documentary and should be shown in its warts and all gritty realism.

    I agree with Jones, however, Homeless and garbage collectors has dominate Hong Kong street photography disproportionately. (Jonathan van Smit's work on HK darker side is still like no others and breathtaking though) . I wouldn't have like this photo if it were not framed with busy legs go to work. The contrast would be even stronger with all three by passers were dressed up more formally.
