Really Heart Wrenching Image
excellent capture ..this feels…with need. i especially find importance in the couple you got walking up towards him…both sets of eyes looking away…great work..
Yes, thank you so much. I also felt that the couple glancing to the side as they passed by was of great importance to the shot!

I just love this photo, but how do you get such great shots like this?I’m always worried the person is going to get mad at me…
Thank you MissBarber. I have been expirimenting with candid street photography lately. And, yes, it can be very difficult to get these shots!
Sad really the government gives them drugs and forgets about them….What a sick sad world I take care of a Veteran in my house that lost his legs to war…..He can’t afford to live any other way with his prescription Drug addiction military Dr wrote out fir him……….Sick sad world but your photo capture’s the truth. With out change those numbers of homeless veterans will grow.
Being a military member myself, I am truly disheartened when I see veterans in this state of non-existence. It makes me ashamed (and grateful) for everything that I have.
A powerful candid capture!!
