Ever hopeful

One of the ever hopeful dogs at Kandy railway station. None seemed to be troubling anybody, just looking for any food that might be dropped. Poor little souls, what a life.
Fabulous candid capture. The little guy does appear rather dejected.

@salza Oh yes, throughout Sri Lanka and India I saw lots of these little dogs, none of them seemed have anyone who cared for them. What a comparison with the dogs that live with you and me, makes me very sad to see neglected dogs. All are entire, so breed like mad too.

I hope he is well loved by the passing by.

Poor little guy. He does look rather forlorn.

@yaorenliu I wish …

@dide I was nearly in tears several times looking at the dogs in different places over there. So many of them, all look like nobody loves them. A country-wide campaign with marking rings would be a good start.

Oh poor wee chap, I hope enough friendly dog people help him out with food. What an interesting shot

I must admit Marnie - this scene, and similar ones, is why I've never been able to visit any asian countries - I think I would find it all too upsetting.
January 19th, 2019  
Aw this is so sad. Good job it wasn't nearer to home or you would have brought it back with you.
January 19th, 2019  
It seems to be the way in many, many Asian countries :(
January 19th, 2019  
Shame. But a great shot!
January 19th, 2019  
It looks like the little dog isn't the only one with it's on you Marnie :)

Such a sad scene and you’ve presented it well here

He does not look starved. I think they're doing fine. I am attracted to purity at these stations.
January 19th, 2019  
Well, he may be disappointed you had no treat but he doesn't look like he's starving either. I suspect he knows how to put on a good face for a tasty result. I like the feel of this shot- just one little moment in time as a man passes through the station. Great shot.

@haskar @casablanca This poor beggar doesn't look starving, I suspect there's enough stuff dropped at this station for them all to scavenge some kind of nourishment. But there's more to life than that.

@robz @gigiflower Very fair point, sometimes you get to see things you'd rather not.
January 20th, 2019  
@onewing Yep, that one and about a zillion others.
January 20th, 2019  
@dibzgreasley Glad you liked it, pity the guy spotted me.
January 20th, 2019  
@merrelyn Not wrong!! I took a few shots, and he only spotted me at the last gasp.
January 20th, 2019  
@olivetreeann Not starving, but very neglected. There's likely be plenty to scavenge at a big station like that.
January 20th, 2019  
Found it! Still love it how you've captured that forlorn look :) FAV
January 20th, 2019  
@gilbertwood Thanks Denise, it was that face that got me.
January 20th, 2019  
Poor thing. Nice processing

@jgpittenger Thanks Jane, as you'd well know, I'm a sucker for dogs.
