The Stranger

Few days back I saw a question on Quora asking: “Is there a person, a stranger, whom you met once in your life and are likely to never meet again, who affected you in some profound way?” and yes it made think of a stranger i met 2 years ago.

It was in December 2011 while having my camera and was strolling in Warsaw, Poland where I met a beggar, I had my eye in the viewfinder and waiting for the right moment to snap it and then suddenly he turned and looked at me and gave me a smile.

A smile that means a lot when i look back at his photo, maybe for him it meant yes you can take my photo and drop me few coins to get some food, or he used to get snapped by total strangers and this was his way to look cool, but every time i remember this guy or look at his photo, it means “don’t worry, be happy”!
