A tricycle with a luggage carrier was parked in the alleyway. And a man was sleeping on its rear deck. The lane was busy. Many pedestrians were passing by him. Yet he didn't seem to care about that. I thought of nothing better than the fluctuating drowsiness and the hunger. I wanted to shoot the atmosphere of this alley.

When I held my SLR camera, some boys walking the lane noticed me and looked back at me. Although they didn't take account of the sleeping man, they became curious about the foreign stranger holding a camera. To see someone sleeping by the wayside could be common for them.
