He looks like a man who works very hard. I imagine he has a family somewhere.

I like the second picture very much, especially the colour tone. Eventhough he is riding a 'BMW', he seems to have a lot in his mind. Like Leora, I think he works hard to put food on the table. If I am in Melaka, I will ride his trishaw so that he can earn some extra money to feed his family.

Awesome work! There's so much written in his face. Of course, I'm partial to the B&W version, but you probably guessed that. ;)

i think if it's colored, it would've been vibrant. candid shot of this foto makes it a nice one.
happy weekend!

Isn't interesting how changing the tonal effect of a shot you can change the emotional impact? In Photo 1, the trishaw is the subject. Whereas in Photo 2, the trishaw driver's facial expression is. They're both wonderful photographs.

Thanks for visiting my photo blog. Have a wonderful weekend!
