Pas de doute que des 2 versions, le plan large avec le flouté autour, ou ce plan plus serré, celle ci a beaucoup plus d'impact. La verdure a l'extérieur amenait une touche de gaité, et le flou n'était pas convainquant, alors que la, c'est l'uppercut: Vlan, la tache de jaune dans le gris sombre, on va droit au but. On ne voit que lui, cette courbure du dos et cette flexion de la tête, a laquelle personne ne peut être insensible - pas par solidarité nécessairement, plus égoïstement en s'imaginant a sa place.
Alors, oui, il crie. Sa posture crie, elle jure, elle parle plus que toutes les paroles. Voila une image qui marque, Laurent!

i love the lighting drawing attention to the only colour within the scene - the person.

This image looks very cathartic to me. The pose is quite striking. The contrast between his clothing and the background really grabs the viewer's attention and that effect is magnified by the straightforward composition.

and to tell you the truth, this poor man was in the most touristic place of Paris, a quite doc along the river, nobody's seemed to notice his misery.

When we're in the city, our selective vision seems to turn on and we filter these kinds of sights from view. (Yes, I include myself in "we," unfortunately, though I've gotten a little better after volunteering at a homeless shelter for two summers.) I think your picture is an important reminder in this respect.

I'm also part of the "we" you were talking about.

I see them, even more, I'm looking for them as I want to make picture of them, so i'm searching across the streets.
Well, searching isn't a correct word, I have no effort to make, it's not really hard to find them, they are more and more, we could even walk on them has they are lying in the streets, they don't hide, they expose themselve I would say.

The most horrible is when I need a break, I just ignore them, sometimes I pass my way or say no when they ask, I don't even give a look, sometimes...

And the most of the most horrible (I think you say the worst in english) it's when I have to make a choice, should I make this picture here? Why this one and not this other one?
I'm tired of that and scared about where my photos goes, you know...
