Camera: Canon EOS-450D Rebel XSi

Yes, OK, it's a shoehorn but this guy was a London Hobo but just a bit cleaner than most, and he had an iPod.

The bags he had were full of his life and his backpack was full of his valuables his bike had a flat tyre so he rode it on the grass. A high class hobo but certainly in Poverty even compared to me.

est score - 6.0
dream score - anything over 6 for the team.


Thank you all, I am honoured for the ribbon. Have to thank Mark-A as he see the shot but failed to snap it.. I did, wallop! thank you for the ribbon. xx

Got to disagree on the shoehorn part. It's a most excellent image and well worthy of top three. MAK, I love your predictions - they're just so OFF ;-))

Now that is more like it. Winning a ribbon when it counts. It is about time.

ROFL!!! You know, I gave this a high score but, I was scratching my head because I couldn't put the "poverty" together with an ipod! I thought I was mistaken on what it really was.

Congrats on your ribbon! A shoehorn wins! LOL

I don't see how this is a shoehorn at all, way to come up big and ribbon for Poland again, sick!

Nice capture. the use of B&W works well here. I like the focus on the man with the bike. Nice details in his face and clothes. The blurring in the backround keeps my attention on the subject.

Is that an ipod? Maybe it's an early mono version! lol
