Brother, can you spare a dime?

This shot was taken a day or two before Christmas here in downtown Toronto. It
was bitterly cold and I was standing on the opposite side of the street from a
large department store when I noticed an elderly man standing in front of a
display window asking passersby for money. As is often the case, most people
simply walked by without giving him even a glance.
There was a dark, brooding atmosphere to the scene offset by the brightly coloured display behind him that
I liked, so using my longest lens, I grabbed this shot. Almost immediately after I took this, the man turned and walked away.
