He was the only earning member of the family and sadly he could not make it through to the big league. "Fortune favors the dishonest and not the hardworking" was the summary of his life experiences. He was born in Middle Class and he stayed that way for the rest of his life. The clothesline here narrates the story of thousands of middle class households, whose misfortunes are probably a result of rampant corruption.

The Composition

The Photo falls under the Minimalism as Less Elements Category. I treated all shadows combined as a single element. The photo therefore a a bit maximally minimal in nature as the shadows are spread across the frame. Rule of thirds is not necessarily required here but you can still apply it by leaving some empty space under the subject.
