14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Beggar at the Arc

While visiting Paris, this beggar in the Arch Du Triumph underpass was so still, I was captivated by the motionless man. After I crafted this photograph I compensated him with a few coins; a local man didn't like that one bit and curse me out. Apparently, immigrant beggars are a big problem in France.
