(old rodeo man looking for housing, sf, 11/22/06)
archie from texas standing on the sidewalk near the tenderloin. he's just made it here from texas. asked for a photo, says "i don't mind."
archie is an old cowboy. says he used to ride rodeo in sf. says he still has a son in san francisco and points across the way.
archie's face tells stories. he bends slightly and walks slowly. he has aged.
as i approach he is about to cross the street. a heavyset transgender woman stands in front, says something over her shoulder and crosses the street.
a few minutes later she returns. she is his son. she takes his hand, pointing to a place where he can apply for housing. he follows.
