Abandoned Jeans

This is the one and only shot I had in my fairly megre archive that even comes close. I apologise for the weakness of it, but I just haven't had time to get out there and build up a stock of images. So here goes.

Poverty?

This was in a part of Oslo called Bjølsen, and it's quite a mix of poeple who have and have not (as much). There is poverty in Oslo, of course there is, but I think it's on a completely different level to that of the 3rd World nations and war zones such as Rwanda, Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia.

In some parts of Oslo it is only the clothes that have nowhere to live! You have to remember this is the world's best place to live in according to Unesco...

nice shot. i like the noise in the processing
Psychodudu: Ta mate! It took me a few runs at it before I got it to click. Thanks alot for stopping in! Have a good weekend.
Don't knock it And, it is a very telling image, I can just see this wino wandering around in sub-zero temperatures with no strides on, in grave danger of losing his wedding tackle. Funnily enough they look to be in quite good nick, maybe they were hung out to dry!

I like the gritty b&w.
Psychodudu: Cheers Dad, I not unhappy with it, I just felt I had to explain that, had I had more apropriate material, I would probably have chosen it before this. I'm not making light of poverty, but it is hard to keep perspective here in Norway where we have so much. Thanks for your comments though.
