Walked along a slum and saw this interesting guy who wore pins as earrings. I think there are about 6 or 9 pins on both of his ears. He is a peddler, selling porridge and other food in a small cart. At first he was calling our attention, then when I started taking pictures of him, he got shy. Then after a while he had this serious expression on his face, which I noticed and shot immediately.
