This is Mohammed (or Mo, as he likes to be called). Mo is homeless, so I see him quite often while roaming the back alleys of Vancouver with my camera.

 

He's a funny guy -- he always has something to sell me. The first time, it was woman's shoes. This time it was a progressive scan dvd player (seriously). I've always wanted to photograph him, but he is very nervous about being seen on the internet. I talked him into letting me take a shot in which he would not be identifiable. And I kept my promise :)

 

Sometimes a constraint can lead to an interesting photo.
