the glass is half full b and w by VaggelisFragiadakis the glass is half full b and w by VaggelisFragiadakis
He is there, on Union Square, downtown San Francisco; alone; at times he is hungry, at times he is cold, or wet from the rain….but his smile is always on; he never looses his spirit; give him a smile and he will give you one back; give him some change and his face will light up with joy and love………to him, the glass is never half empty……….

here is the color version:[link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-04-02
The reason for the glass is half full b and w by =vaggelisf being given a DD can be found in the Artist's Comments. Read them and tell me your heart hasn't been touched. One of the rare moments a photograph brought a tear to my eye. ( Featured by l8 )

Συμπόνια, κατανόηση, ολιγάρκεια, ταπεινότητα, ανωτερότητα... αφιερωμένο σε όλους όσους αναζητούν το νόημα και την ουσία της ζωής στις διασκεδάσεις και στα πολλά, που τις περισσότερες φορές δεν είναι καν απόρροια του δικούς τους ιδρώτα...!

I did a portrait dedicated to this man with a lovely smile, though he looks better in real life as captured by your photograph. I've never been to San Francisco, but I wish him well. :heart:
