Paris in contrast II

Remember this picture below, from an earlier entry?

Here are more pictures which I have managed to snap around Paris... I just wonder if they were victims of an organized syndicate... Or they had no option but to do so? I simply hope something could be done to protect them, to provide them with a better life and welfare. It doesn't matter where in the world - I just can't imagine being in their shoes! :(

Love in abundance, but how about sparing some for this destitute soul?

Muslim women begging in front of mosques in Malaysia is a common sight. This one seeks the compassion of visitors to the Catholic church of Sacre Coeur, on the hill of Montmartre...

Pity this old granny... but I love her shoes! And she stylishly carries a Louis Vuitton paper bag!
A friend of mine said "Well, at least she's 'bagging' in Paris!" I just went speechless!

*All pictures above were taken on my compact camera.

hmm did the old lady with cane wearing addidas?

* i have a strict policy of not giving money to people who beg for it. some of these people actually try to do something such as performing or selling something, and these people deserved my extra change.
