don’t like to take photographs of beggars, I think it’s not ethical, and is not in line with my way of seeing street photography.

So let your imagination
I don’t understand why people always want to see beautiful things on photographs!
Lots of images with beautiful women, landscapes, sunsets… with
filters that don’t represent the real world.
Ugly things are more interesting.
