Man With Plastic Bag

First I was amazed by the light shafts going through the structure of this communist-era building. It looks like a cathedral, and than the poor man walked in the scene with his plastic Lidl bag. It contrasts in my eyes: poverty vs. something divine. Ugliness vs. beauty. And man's loneliness...these are the reasons I made this photo.
