      This is sad, because this guy certainly has a lot of advantages and capabilities and is wasting his life. His bicycle is fairly new, so is the rolling carry-on behind his back. Certainly if he can ride a bicycle he can get a menial labor job, like working at a fast food restaurant.

      There are two types of homeless folks, those who can't help it and those who can. Many homeless are intelligent people who have attitude problems; they would rather beg than take a menial job. They are the ones that give the homeless a bad reputation. The others, the ones who have serious psychological or substance abuse issues, need help. IMO they need to be cleaned up, forcibly if necessary (detained), because many of them can and do turn around and lead happy, productive lives after an intervention.

      This is a good image in that it made me question why is this man homeless and what is the difference between myself and him. Good photos invoke responses, and this one did.
