An elderly "trolley lady" in Hong Kong pushes her laden carts to a nearby recycling centre in Sham Shui Po.

Many of Hong Kong's poorer senior citizens still scrape by through working low paid jobs on the street, pushing heavy carts around scavenging cardboard and other recyclibles, to earn as little as $6 a day in a city that ranks amongst one of the most expensive in the world for living costs.

It's an intriguing photo and the theme that this photo radiates is great. It is a painful photo. The woman bent under the heavy load. The contrast between going forwards but also being restrained by her baggage. And some details are great like the man passing her with his shiny nikes. And the chain hanging from her bag. Love it!

I like the social dimension, Hong Kong is the typical place where many people will only focus on neons and skyscrapers, but as in every global city, there are many aspects to be shown.

Wow. This type of photo is what comes to my mind when you start about "street photography". Very cool shot.
