Artist's Description

LARGER VIEW RECOMMENDED – click or tap image

A Pomona crack whore (aka. cum dumpster) ducked between a trash dumpster and a grease dumpster behind a taco joint on Foothill Bl. to take a few hits. By the time I got the camera up, she had lit a cigarette and started pawing through the trash. Sights like this are common on the mean streets, especially when your intrepid photographer is on safari for such shots. I wish I had been able to get the shot of her hitting up. As it is, it’s a pretty gritty shot of a pretty gritty life going straight into Life’s Dumpster. God help her.

I had the 55mm lens on the cam – a mistake I will not repeat on future safaris such as this. Getting candid shots is key, because if I am seen I create danger for myself. I’m on their turf and nobody likes nosy photographers. She may have a pimp nearby and I don’t wanna tangle with a Pomona pimp, much less a drugged out streetwalker . . .
