Welcome to the meme, "My Sunday Best", which is a photographic and creative meme that allows you to showcase your talents in imaging. Every Sunday, you can post here showing an image you have created using your camera, (and/or) image processing software, and/or painting and drawing in the conventional way and have scanned in.

The rules are simple:
1) Create your image and post it up on your blog;
2) Put the "My Sunday Best" logo image link somewhere on your post so people can click and come by here;
3) Leave a comment here once you have posted;
4) Visit other posters' blogs and be amazed with their creativity!

Please do not use this meme to advertise your goods or services. This is a creative meme and any inappropriate links or comments shall be removed immediately!

  1. A powerful image, a sad sight to see

    Thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto

  2. It is a sad sight to see, people homeless out in the cold. Have a happy day and new week!

  4. A real insight into everyday street life

  5. It's so sad... It happens in every country. Good picture, Nick.
