Happy by Zenhead Happy by Zenhead
Sure I smelt the marijuana... maybe it wasnt him.

Adelaide Street, Brisbane City.

This guy is here often. He hoola-hoops for money. At his feet, he has made a sign. It reads:

"I am 72 years old and was injured during the Korean war 55 years ago. A bullet went through my leg. You can see if you like. We fought against Nth Korea under support from UN forces. We are now trying to be reunited as 1 country. My dream is to establish a church and to draw the people of Korea to God's fold. I've been saving and collecting contributions all around the world for this purpose. Your generousity will glorify God as it helps the furtherance of his work in union with Jesus. Thankyou and God bless you, Elder Paik".

Happy by =Zenhead Photographs are about moments. Well ... that and composition and exposure too. This deviant nailed all of them with this. Bravo! ( Suggested by zort and Featured by cweeks )

good luck!

however, giving him 100 would probably tip the economy over the edge:p
