Cant afford to sit on one... Behind society bars.

Can't afford to sit on one... Behind society bars.

Weekly challenge: "Chairs"
The weather was gorgeous and rather comfortable,
he probably is wearing those "winter clothes" since last winter,
even if they were clean with jeans freshly ironed it seemed,
allowing me to have a glimpse at the reality of his "existence"
moved me.
This makes me sad in more than one way, deep inside.
How will he do with the winter weather that is fast approaching?
So many things are taken for granted
and so many people are just made invisible...
I should open a gallery (and my car windows...)
for my "drive by shooting on a red light..."

Great shot.

Excellent photo journalism.

A powerful image, and a powerful sentiment Claudia. It seems that the incidence of homelessness is increasing everywhere, and oddly the more there are the more invisible they become.

This is a great shot Claudia...whenever i see homeless people i always wonder where their family is and why they must live in the streets...the answer i do not know...BV

What is exceptional about this image is that it humanizes the homeless. This person could easily be someone’s father, uncle, or friend. Great capture, which is well processed. V
