    All pictures of your series "early morning rise" I like very much. Pictures affect so authentical to me and you illustrate the people with respekt and sympathy. This is a wonderful portrait of man and donkey.
    Best regards, Claudia

    a wonderful scene .... timeless, as there are probably scenes like this to be found all over your country .... excellent black and white with fine details and tonality - I like your title too :-))))
    greetings, Adele

    This fine shot makes me think of the crofters who lived on the islands of Scotland. I love the kindly smile on the gentleman's face.
    best wishes,

    What kind of delightful living car. Both, the driver and the "car" look very relaxed. Neither jam ore other obstructions of traffic must be afraid. A photo, that I can look only with a smile.

    :))) The kind of 'car' that is reliable [most of the time] costs little to service and runs on low cost fuel......and in spite of living in a poor area this man looks content as he goes about his daily duties.

    ... The donkey says "don't forget to fill the fuel tank" ;-))

    Excellent documentary work Alexander.
    I'll bet the original medium format image is crammed with detail.
    all the best
