Waterfront property...

I've seen this guy many times on my back-roads route into the office. He lives under the concrete platform that he is standing on in this photo. But only when the tide is out, because the platform is part of an old pier. Truly a sympathetic image.

Yes, I've seen images like that a lot, and you always think about it--just what kind of "reality" is present to that person and how completely foreign it is to us--we ask ourselves could we do it, if we were in his situation?

This 'blog of note' experience has been truly fascinating. For the most part, our comments have been supportive and thought-provoking. And naturally, there's a significant number of self-promoting comments luring you to a website. But then that's that small segment of comments that seem to take our innocent and fun photos and use them to sell some prejudicial position. Fascinating place, this internet.

I am going to guess that he is not allowed in the Abercrombie and Fitch store in LA.

It's not so much that the fence keeps him in but that the fence keeps people out.

If you think this guy paints a sad picture, check out this guy:

He's a homeless guy from Scotland who basically lives like an animal - unbelievable, sad and true!

sc roxx: What I have found helps me with my street photography is familiarity. Like any subject, a street scene is only personal if you know it. So in the case of this shot, and others along this same route, they frankly get more interesting the more that I return to the same location. Only then do I notice the patterns and what makes the location special to me. Otherwise, I'm just a voyer.

"Truly a sympathetic image." You take something away from the picture by editorializing. Let the viewer make up their mind. Then people are not agreeing or disagreeing with you, they are simply commenting.
