    Neat shot! I sat here thinking what he was doing. You make every picture like a frozen story. You are quite the photo-talented individual!

    In my old neighborhood in Brookly, NYC many of the elderly folks collected recyclable cans and bottles to return for the small amounts.

    They worked all day, often starting out at 5AM – many needed to do this to supplement small retirement checks.

    Your photo is beautiful.

    Interesting photo. I too was curious about what this man could be doing. It seems like he is about to speak into one of the cardboard tubes!

    This was a good use of the black and white medium. It just suits this image. Happy WW.

    Seems like he is talking to the boxes. It is awful that anyone ends up collecting boxes to make a living.

    It’s quite touching to watch the elderly still working to help their families.

    Funny.. I was going to suggest the caption “Recycle… It Works!” And I guess htta’s pretty much the idea here.

    Very nice shot!

    Great shot. I remember those people from my time in Singapore. Sad. The contrast with the shiny car is stark.
