Old Lady #iPhoneography #Venice #Venezia #Italy

This old lady is bent almost double, and seems to spend her day walking painfully and increedibly slowly up and down the Riva degli Schiavoni holding out a begging cup. We have no idea what is wrong with her, and most people ignore her as they pass by too consumed in their own concerns. I wanted to photograph her discreetly and in a way that did not invade her personal space or privacy, which is why I went for this back view as she is almost out of the frame, but it is still clear to the viewer what kind of person she is.
