Our World: Blind Old Man

While visiting the Turkish and Afghani souk area down in Old Jeddah, I captured this quiet old man resting, sitting on a rock.  Although weather worn, his clothes are clean and he seems well cared for.  In his hand he is holding a few riyals, given to him by passersby.

A touching shot. I do hope he is cared for!

Somehow it's harder to see the elderly begging than the young. A comfortable old age seems only fair after so many years no matter what life has been like before.
