Tin Man

Day 127/365

Week 15 Theme: None

 

* Had to run down to get some parts from a supplier near the Packard plant. On my way back I spotted this man walking down the road. He looked like he was scared of something, always glancing around and walking quickly. His bag of groceries broke and spilled on the street. All the metal on him probably cut his thin plastic grocery bag. I stopped to try to help him and talk to him. He was very evasive but took my plastic bag. All he'd say when I'd try to talk to him was "I can't talk. I can't be out here long". I have never seen this guy before, and I see quite a few of the same characters around here. He obviously holes up somewhere and hides until he has to come out to get food. Sadly for him, he also is Detroit.
