Szabolcs-Attila Bönd… on February 1, 2011

A very sad photo, but a great idea for posting in NPC! good luck!

best regards from Hungary


Zlatan Olić on February 1, 2011

hi Attila, my intention is fair, and it relates with a reality seen in the middle of the old city's center, in the middle of the day..... as the topic is Men And Women At Work, with a clarification: Work is a physical or mental effort or activity directed toward the production or accomplishment of something, or doing something which enables persons to live or earn a living. It’s impossibile to describe all kinds of work (etc) - I just wanted to show "another side of the coin", ie, somebody's start from the the end or ending from the start... thanks for your comment, good luck, kind regards from Croatia

Coined a new phrase uh!

That's a very funny pic Zlatan, and for the contest, a contradiction in terms..;>)

thanks Jim, let's call it laughter through tears... but often we need it, right? remember Charlie Chaplin when he was hungry, he ate a shoe just for causing crying tears of sorrow in one eye and crying tears of joy on the other eye... I have to say that we must respect this young man because his job is not a bank robbery, or any other work of the overt or covert ways of taking advantage for his wealth and health at the expense of other people in his own favor ...

thanks also:


kind regards Zlatan

anoush, that's right, simply put: this is life...

but many first shall be last and the last first. (Matthew, 19:30)

everyone who exalts himself will be humbled and who humbles himself will be exalted. (Luke, 18.13 to 14)

who was at the top, now is down, and who was down, up rises. now on top of the sword, crown hangs, now, on top of the crown, sword falls, now on the empire the slave arose, a slave is now who the emperor was. (Ivan Gundulić, Osman)

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on February 5, 2011

You speak with words of wisdom Zlatan..He possibly is committing no other crime than begging, the second oldest profession..As for Chaplin, probably the finest comic of the twentieth century..the little man with the funny walk and swinging stick..

Unfortunately Zlatan, the bank robbers are hiding under a cloak of respectability..I have more respect for this poor unfortunate than those who stole all our money ;>)

Kind regards!!


Zlatan Olić on February 5, 2011


thanks much for your additional comment....

as you well understand, I do not condemn this guy, not making fun of him, nor do I associate him with any crime, perhaps tmay I associate him only with the inefficiency of his participation in, often brutal, struggle for survival in our everyday Asphalt Jungle... I am pleased to sign in bold the last part of your great comment! ;)

best wishes, Zlatan
