Compositionally, this isn’t a very good photo. But journalistically it gets by because it does tell a story, even if you didn’t know that is was taken along the Las Ramblas in Barcelona, Spain. It is a photo of a mendicant (more rudely, a beggar) and his best friends.
I suspect that some may ask if he would have to beg if he weren’t trying to feed 4 pets. I would ask instead, “What do you value and how much is it worth to you?”
