For Rural Thursday

  1. Bieda była, jest i będzie, ale można pomóc takim osobom, na ile jest się w stanie. Nie jest to łatwy temat do zdjęć. Pozdrawiam. *** Poverty was, is and will be, but you can help those affected, as far as you are able. This is not an easy subject to shoot. Yours.

    1. I know that is not an easy subject, but this is what I see every day on the streets.

  3. I was so pleased to see you dropped by my place today. Enjoy very much when someone from another part of our world shows up. I am sure I would have loved reading your post, but I could not find a translator.

  5. thanks so much for coming by my site today.
    I wish I could read more of your blog but I don't find a translator anywhere.

    I hate that there's poverty ANYwhere but I know there's a lot of it. So sorry.

    Thanks again and I hope you will come again soon.

  6. Mie, sincer, nu mi se pare aceasta poza chiar asa de reprezentativa pt saracia autentica. Persoana in cauza este imbracata relativ calduros, si are si bani ca sa isi cumpere apa la sticla care e si aia gasibila din abundenta. Ce ti s-a parut tie in imaginea asta chiar asa de nivel de saracie ? Ca nu e curatata strada prea bine de zapada ? Asta se intampla si in tari mai bogate.

    1. Apa nu era imbuteliata ci era luata in acele sticle de la o bodega de pe langa casa (magazia) in care statea.

    2. Oricum, personajele din poza arata bine hranite si calduros imbracate, potrivit pt vreme, relativ in putere, nu slabe fata de vreun posibil efort de carat apa de undeva, si in general mie nu mi s-a parut ca se resimte nici o tristete sau ingrijorare prea acuta re saracie din poza. Fata/chipul uman al saraciei pt mine personal este totodata imposibil sa nu fie influentata de pozele d-nei Dorothea Lange despre Marea Depresie americana interbelica.

  7. o recomandare ca data viitoare sa adaugi o descriere sau vrei sa iti surpinzi cititorii sa ghiceasca ei iar mai apoi le spui care a fost intentia ta?

    1. A fost si o descriere (daca vezi raspunsul dat mai sus) dar cei care vizitau si nu stiau limba romana nu intelegeau asocierea. Am hotarat sa il sterg.

    2. Am impresia ca esti in eroare, "maestre"! Fotografia expusa are rol de opera de arta, investita cu mesajul dorit de autor. Faptul ca eu sau altul nu suntem suficient de lamuriti, nu cred ca este cea mai grava problema.
      Este uzual ca, dupa expunerea operei, artistul sa vina, sa revina, cu explicatii, cu detalii.
      Mi se par exagerate pretentiile celor care pretind "mura-n gura".

  12. So glad you linked up w/ Rural Thursday!

    We lived for 3 months without water once, during a drought. It was not fun! Great picture!

  13. This is a great photo. You've really captured an image of poverty set against a cold winter. Thank you for following me. I'm going to follow you too.

  14. Excellent reportage photography.
    Sad scene, but that is reality and life.

    Regards and best wishes

  15. Greşesc eu, sau e chiar în buricul târgului?

    1. Nu gresesti deloc. Sta in casele alea fara ferestre, de prin centrul vechi

  16. @Rudolf, avand in vedere ca intamplarea este din centrul capitalei, este totusi un semnal de alarma pt ca peisajul este dezolant si neingrijit si nici nu stiu cat de firesc este ca o persoana batrana care sta in centru (loc care ar trebui sa fie unul infloritor, de bun augur) nu are apa potabila acasa si trebuie sa o care de te miri unde in bidoane. Nu prea este o imagine demna de un centru istoric al unei capitale europene. Ceva de gen se intampla intr-adevar in zonele rurale dar unde exista scuza ca nu au apa potabila acasa.
