Jordanian grandpas

I made this shot during our second visit to Jordan. Unfortunately, this is the only shot I made with people, but I think it’s not a bad one.¬†We had a full day to see the Jordanian capital despite it was hot (in June).

I found these interesting men in the streets of Amman on our way to Amman Citadel, but the most interesting about them is what they do in the streets. I didn’t see any customers with them but looks like they manually polish a shoes. Incredible! Impossible to see anything similar in UAE or maybe in Europe even (except museums of course). But here, you can see them, shoot them and even talk to them!

Sometimes I think that modern lifestyle has changed our world, life principles (how we live) and professions (what we do) significantly. Nobody tend to have a dirty and hard job, except they forced to do it. Almost all people nowadays want to be a lawyers, doctors or do some other stuff sitting in the comfortable offices and drive a sports cars. I didn’t see anybody younger than these elderly men doing the same job in the streets. It seems like this profession will dissappear after these grandpas will leave the world of living.
