Artist's Description

Two of the ‘better established’ of Sacramento’s homeless were sitting on the same bench, completely ignoring each other. Both had clothing for the weather, real food, and containers for their belongings. Both were semi-clean and fully alert. Either or neither may have known the date but both were coping with it well enough for me to feel no instant urge to “help” in ways I couldn’t.

Shot was taken with full telephoto sans tripod to allow them their privacy and with only 1 burst of 3 shots for each individual, I got one shot each that wasn’t blurry. Shutter speed was fast enough to assure that. It has rained a bit between then and now and it has been cold a foggy. I pray both these example’s of God’s children are well.
