These photos got us thinking about another trip overseas and we think they might do the same for you.

some cool images here, i love the old person black and white look. the wrinkles really pop out when shooting old people and converting to black and white, infact i think its one of my faveourite types of photos

These kinds of photos are great, but I can’t help feeling that it’s getting a little exploitive. If not exploitive, it’s definitely bordering on cliched.

Go to Asian/South American country -> Take picture of unhappy or vacant looking child/old person -> Convert to monotone -> receive 6000 comments on Flickr.
