I wonder what the story of this couple was that I saw on the streets of Paris last month while I was there on a visit. I could see such despair and a sense of having lost all hope in this moment. His unforgiving glance put a knot in my stomach, but this is what photographers do. We capture moments in life that are sometimes good and sometimes not so good. I did pray for them to find their way.

    Thank you for the responses. This was one of those moments where I had to really stay in my role as the observer. You can feel the pain and desperation in a glance at this couple in Paris.
