photoblog image Madam, a beg..

Madam, a beg..

This kid was outside my car begging for some change. I think he was fed up having to beg drivers and passengers all day under the burning sun because he was quite rude about it. That is until i fished out my cameraphone and his countenance changed completely! I held my phone up to his face and he flashed me this wicked smile. He was over the moon when i showed him his picture and went to get his friends. They came back so excited that all talk of "Madam, a beg" (which means "Please madam (give me some change)") ceased. All they wanted was to have their picture taken! It's amazing how the simplest things bring so much joy.

May God give you a lot to smile about this week.

The contrasting Mercedes is such a fantastic backdrop. I'm going to have to steal this picture sometime.... I'm sure of it. I'm beginning to think your pictures are probably better with the camera you've got. But we'll never know until....! Excellent shots.
