Broadway Avenue, New York City
"Poverty is the worst form of violence." Mohandas Gandhi
This photo was captured at Broadway Avenue, Upper West Side and is part of the Hipstamatic photography series of New York, Manhattan.
We are living in the 21st Century, probably with more material things than we ask for. For these people life is difference. Very different. This particular human being has to improvise when it comes to sleeping quarters, while most of us take our bedroom for granted. In the photo below I couldn't help but notice a certain serene glow on his face. Is it because he is comfortable, or is it because he finally found happiness?
The settings on the Hipstamatic camera for this photography series on the Upper West Side of Manhattan were Lucifer VI/BlackKeys SuperGrain for both pictures. Flash was used in the second picture to bring out the glow of his face. Flash used was RedEye Gel.
