Creative..interesting story..well done!
Excellent photojournalism. very sad.
Thanks!! Homelessness is a sad affair. Unfortunately, these two folk were quite troublesome, quarrelsome & belligerent in the neighborhood. I often had to chase them out of the grocery where I worked. A day or two after this they got into an argument and he assaulted her. The cops hauled him off to jail. That was last September. The last time I saw her, perhaps two months ago, she told me she had been able to stay clean & sober for the last 60 days. Hopefully that continues.
Wow, goes straight to the heart this one…………………
So easy for us to sneer at such people but, I bet some of us at some time in our lives could have said " There but for the Grace of God go I ". A sad image but you were right to record it to show others. Regards. P.
So true. So true. I’ve been there myself. I got to know this couple and did what I could to help. Unfortunately, he ended up in jail on a Domestic Violence charge. The last I saw of her she told me she had 60 days clean & sober. That was more than a year ago. I hope they are well.
These kind of images touch many souls ..sad hope they are doing well though life for some is so difficult..
I hope so as well. I haven’t seen them in more than a year.
