I like the geometry of the image; basic shapes interconnecting but not really interacting. The angled stairs, the differently angled and almost-but-not-quite triangular shape of the shelter's roof below, the square of the open part of the shelter and of course the form of the shopping trolley.
The "Angel 99" bit set me to wondering; the series Angel (way back before vampires became tedious) premiered in late 1999. How do I recall that? Because it was what was on TV on my first night in LA in my one and only visit to the US in 1999. Of course it may not be a reference to that series at all, but the leading apostrophe does suggest an abbreviation of a longer number.
Wow, reminds me of a place here where homeless guys stay. Very good composition. Has a solumn feel. V
Fantastic tones and details Karen!!! V
I had never seen an angel buggy before. :) V
Wonderfully sharp and so many details.
B&W is definitely the way to go with a shot like this.
Nice black and white bravo!!!

Excellent thought-provoking composition with great clarity. v
Lovely - Angell 99 has her own shopping cart

Excellent detail Karen. An angel somewhere.
A great study, lots of elements to ponder. Outstanding clarity and focus. V
a gritty and complex scene...
Good discovery Karen! I understand that shopping carts are pretty expensive and stolen on a frequent basis. V
There's a story happening there Karen! v
So much, to see and wonder about Karen. Nicely captured and handled.
Make me an angel that flies from montgom'ry
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
You find the most intriguing places with your sharp eyes and this proof of your skills! V.

My eyes move slowly over the whole fame to take in all those interesting elements, and the fine detail make it a pleasure to do! V
Quite a lot to see in this black and white...great detail....well caught...V
Very telling photo. I believe we all see a bigger story behind the simple buggy. V
A marvelous find and brilliant image! V
A great sharp image! So nicely composed too. I agree with Christine, this would work in your Desolation Row Gallery. V
marvelous tones and super composition
What a great photo! Love the story that this tells...or at least the one that I'm telling myself. V
superb find and nicely composed!
I almost imagined someone sleeping rough there. v
What a wonderful picture-perfect scene, Karen! This is such a terrific shot with so many interesting things. \/

This could be a part of your Desolation Row gallery. The textures, shapes and the overall ambience, are terrific.. Wonder where Angel from '99 is now. V
