Rick,Thanks for the comments, Robert. What is strange is that I almost never shoot any scenes containing homeless people. But in this instance, I found the scene very compelling. In all my years, I have just a handful of images of homeless people. I feel that the image needs to contain some sort of story or message to convey the terrible circumstances of their situation. As Nick mentioned above, I too, wondered what the man was thinking sitting in the upscale sidewalk café. This is why I enjoy your work portraying the street people in your area. You, my friend, shoot with what I call a compassionate camera.
Thanks to all who viewed the shots and for leaving comments.
