Artist's Description

Good Buddies. Hearts of Gold
Camera Nikon D700 with 24-120mm Lense.

Just a couple of really good mates. I see these guys every day on my way to Church. They are street drinkers and really wonderful people. Some people are frightened to approach them, but over the last 18 months I’ve stopped to chat with them every time I see them. They drink all day from sometimes 4.00am till dusk, summer and winter. I feel for them, trapped in a lifestyle that’s destroying their bodies, but as people they are the some of the most loyal, friendly, fun and sociable I’ve ever met. They look after one another too, sometimes one will fall over too drunk to stand, they’ll look out for him. They really do care and show their concern for others that they know in the church too.
What I’ve learned is not to judge by appearances, they all got stories of why they drink the way they do, they are mostly people who’ve been hurt in some way in life, and they need our love, care and friendship more than sympathy or trying to sort them out. They are also the kind of people my Lord would have gone out of his way to be with…
