McHungry - not lovin' it by flumpie McHungry - not lovin' it by flumpie
Words become meaningless. :|






Data: handheld, iso800, f5.0, 1/400s, 56mm, no filter. handed him enough for a burger
Postprocessing: as in viewfinder, channel-mixer on everything but the M's

Update: I'm new to this prints thing but I uploaded a version that prints well in both
heavyweight-matte and premium semigloss on my epson r800. Hopefully the uploaded
version works well with dA's printing as well. Print version slightly dodged to bring forth
man behind window.

Thanks to: *anjules for suggesting this to ^Moonbeam13 who featured this as
a daily deviation. And they kept me in the dark. Thanks for featuring streetshots too. :blowkiss:

Also thanks to: everyone who feels something when they see this shot, and thanks
to everyone who comments and gives me insight in your thoughts and feelings, that's very
valuable to me. Thank you all. :w00t:

I never really give poor people money.
I go and buy them food and something to drink... i don't know maybe I spent more, but I feel better.

That's always better. We wouldn't want them using that money for drugs or alcohol. It's always better to give them food. The worst was when I saw this homeless dude who looked down and out, I gave my my Pepsi, he took it & mixed quarter rum into it . I was shocked.

This is absolutely amazing. It really opened my eyes. You deserve more than just a DD and a bunch of nice comments. That man must have been touched by the fact that you cared enough to do this and give him a little money to boot. This brought tears to my eyes. TERRIFIC JOB.

People are right. This speaks for itself in many ways. I love how there are people in the background eating. It shows the good people being able to eat at this (disgusting) establishment and the old man who is probably poor and can't afford to eat at all craving for food who can't eat that night or maybe for that week because he has no place to go.

This is common in some countries in Asia. We won't give the homeless money as they might be able to work but they don't try, they suppose to work as there's many poor people that try to get money. Also, there are gangs that get disable people to sit around and beg for money then when the day end the gang come up and take the money. I know that from the police and media.

I really like the message that the picture has, but I do feel bad for the old man. Did you ask him if he may star in your picture? Taking this picture of the homeless old man can also be looked at as rude- how I view it :(

You should have given him more than enough for a fucking gmo mac donalds burger. you took a great picture look at all the comments you got. I think that a great shot he provided you with should be paid more than a burger

That is really terribly sad! I love the photograph's message because so many times these sorts of tragedies are overlooked in the face of our own self-centered materialism. I feel that it is one of human kind's greatest sadnesses that it allows hunger and starvation of those who cannot help themselves to survive. Great photo, amazing message!
