Cash For Everything!

I was struck by the ridiculousness of this natural urban scene. The poses of the two people in the scene - the image of the banker and the lady begging - are excellently synchronised, yet diametrically opposed in terms of content: one full of cash, the other empty, hoping for some cash. It looked like some kind of joke, like the ultimate image to show the extreme contrasts in our society. The writing in Ukrainian reads: Cash For Everything!
