I couldn't agree more. You do very well, proving it's the photographer and not the camera which is ultimately the determining factor in any good body of work.

Thanks for the feedback, John and Eric. Despite his disability Mi does his trade with dignity and he impresses me a lot. I am relieved to see that Mi is not controlled by thugs, at least in HK. Many poor disabled people in China (mostly from rural areas) are forced by gangs to beg in the cities. Of course the money goes to the latter.
