The old man and the pain

I saw this man walking in the street under a killing sun, it broke my heart to see this little peace of man in pain. I hesitated and asked him if he needed some help, he looked at me with a the beautiful smile of a wise man. I help him to open his door. That was my good action of the day. It's your turn...

    How do you comment on a photo such as this? I love your work. It breaks my heart (some of your photos) but in a way they make me smile. You capture moments of life that usually are ignored and you somehow make them beautiful... in a sad way. Like I said, how do I comment on such a photo?
