(Off topic) I was watching early morning TV this morning. There was a section about a charity that tried to get homeless people off the streets, into warm accommodation whilst the cold snap is on. They interviewed a very articulate guy who up to last June worked for the NHS. He got ill for a short while, and was sacked as his illness made him a target for budget cuts. He has now lost everything-wife, house, car...the lot...and lives on the street.
Budget cuts are necessary, but sometimes they have unexpected, and unwanted results

So poignant with the guy in the wheel chair looking on - wonder if he felt relieved........or had he just passed the time of day with his mate the paper seller.

A very nice street scene and a beautiful Black and White. Winter is always a very bad time for people who work or live in the street. Great shot, I love this photo.
Have a good weekend.

B & W image to convey people's feelings very well. They are probably not very happy. Hopefully, as soon as the sun is shining.

poignant frame and title um... propaganda. Messrs Cameron, Clegg, Millaband et al are snug in their cosy little worlds in Westminster, playing party political games with our lives.

digitalCG from Manchester, United Kingdom

Superbly timed shot Curly and a thought provoking one too. Sometimes I think the NHS has developed too broad a remit and it was never sustainable. Used to be a time they'd simply patch you up and send you on your way.
