Gemma Wiseman from Melbourne, Australia

The man seems very intent on his reading, disregarding the cold and snow. What he reads must be important.

@Gemma Wiseman: I think, he´s just rolling a cigarette^^

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

He won the lottery or maybe his bicycle. A cool capture of whatever he's doing.

18 Jan 2019 10:49pm

@Steve Rice: He's just a poor collector of returnable bottles. For one back giving bottle 25ct. Because the pensions are very low in Germany today. Ironically at this plastic bags is something written about "winnings" of a supermarket. Means, everybody who buys there is a winner. This picture is a social critics about our politics here. But his collecting was a bit succesful with two bottle filled bags and a lot more at his bicycle. Truely a "winner" at this day. Earned enough for beer and cigarettes, I think.

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

A great scene. But it must be hard to be collecting bottles in the snow and cold. That is a very sad commentary on how things are today in this world. I really like the use of monochrome and the view of the bike.

18 Jan 2019 11:57pm

@Elaine Hancock: Yes, it is. Germany is one of the richest countrys in the world. But a lot of people are rather poor here today. Really sad reality. Thank you for your comment.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Interesting shot and information about the bottle collector.

Just catching up to this series of wonderful B&W images. So many good photos to view. I (too) appreciate the story and background you provide on the social situation of Germany. It helps us all to learn and makes the photograph that much more poignant. Thank you for sharing. p.s. I love the Talking Heads!! =) Same as it ever was ....
