Wistful thoughts

This guy is a street wanderer in Galle, Sri Lanka. He is pretty much down on his luck. There was something kind but wistful in his eyes. I bought him a lotto ticket after the photo. It was for the following days draw. But, he immediately scratched off the bar code thinking it was one of those tickets for an instant win - I guess he was just keen. Fortunately there was a local guy nearby who helped and explained to him (in Sinhalese) that it was a lotto draw ticket. Anyway, I am sure now that he will check the ticket the next day - and I hope he wins the lot.
