One-legged man in Bucharest

I first spotted him pulling money out of his pocket to buy cigarettes at the corner shop across from my hotel. .

I’d seen him from the side, didn’t notice the crutches til he started walking away.

Near Ceaucescu’s palace, Bucharest in April this year.

I’d seen the man buying some cigarettes at a streetside kiosk and watched him move out of the corner of my eye. He had the smoothest gait. I think he’s been walking these streets for a very long time.
