    Whenever I'm in Cali I always chill with "kids" like the ones in the picture above. I buy them pizza and we just hang out. It's good times. I had my camera with me when I was on Telegraph Ave. and they asked me not to take their picture so I put my camera away.

    Hi Jay,
    I asked them for a picture and offered them a few dollars in exchange. They gladly accepted.

    Useless, shameless, lazy, parasites.

    bft2105,
    Thank you for your sarcastic comment. IMHO, we should be very careful and humble when comparing ourself with those people. Not all those who enjoy a nice life earned or deserve it, as well not all those who live on the street deserve that miserable life.
    Many of us sleep under a roof and enjoy a daily meal only because we where born in decent family, or we grow up in a nice town, or we have been lucky to meet "good" friends. I would be very careful in challenging my good luck...

    Franco,
    You share the same naive worldview as my 12yr old daughter. How sweet.

    Bennington,
    You share the same ignorance as most of the human race. How bliss.

    i've hung out with the guy on right before. decent person, though didn't make enough of an impression on me to remember his name. they don't have a home because they see new cities everyday for free. they are travelers. most of you making comments like "scum, trash, etc" have never lived that kind of life and would never know what it's like to live that kind of life, there for really have no right to be putting forth your own naive opinion. it's also kind of depressing to see how hurtful you can be toward people who were given less than you in life. i met him in philadelphia this past may, it's good to know he's been from sf to philly 3 times around in the past 2 years for free. how many people can say they have done that in their lifetime?

    @ insertnamelisa
    Thank you for your kind words. It's very sad to read some of the previous comments. People can easily confuse being lucky with deserving what they have.

    Why do people make so many assumptions about others based on appearance? They just look like travelers; some of the most interesting people.

    Great capture. I am curious how people can only babble on on about the guy having blue hair... wow, homeless people are our neighbors. They could be anyone. A family member, a friend, in this economy, it could be ourself one day. My mom was there for a short time and stayed with me through a lot of it but by day was out in the extreme heat looking for work, came to my place one night and her feet were blistering and bloody from walking so much... How can people care so little. For a "nation under God" and the land of the free a place full of opportunity I pray more people start caring and start doing something about people in need. Thank you for your posts.

    hello. i just come back from SF where i was lucky to spend some days. I was very shocked and sad about so many homeless people... i make some searches now on internet to know more about this situation... i am more shocked now to read some comments about these people... i wonder how people can say such things, or pretend to know what homeless people should do or how they see life... why a homeless guy wouldn't want to keep his own "style", dye his hairs... this is basic commun sense of humanity i think...

    y'all should read a little about all the trouble these thugs are causing for residents who live in the Haight. Start with sfgate.com.

    These "people" are nothing more than "animals" (rodents, if you will), and need to be exterminated.

    I'm glad to see that they are being exploited as such on flickr, though.
  • Joe Ellis 5y

    I do a lot of volunteer work in SF, helping those who truly need help.

    The "homeless" thugs in the Haight, though - they need to go.

    Joe Ellis You should really check out tom stone's photos before you start calling people rodents and saying they need to be exterminated.
  • Joe Ellis 5y

    @ Blue Nervana - There's a huge difference between the thugs / bullies in this photo and true homeless people in need of help and compassion.

    Joe Ellis I know and I've spent time the kids who hang out on Haight so I'm not going to argue with you on this. I don't believe its right to call them rodents and say they need to be exterminated. I'm sorry, I just don't agree with you on that.
  • Joe Ellis 5y

    @Blue Nervana - perhaps calling them rodents is a bit harsh, but enough is enough. I can't even walk down the street with my own dogs because of these thugs. They need to go. There are plenty of real homeless people who need real help in this city - these thugs exploit that for their own benefit. It's sick and twisted. And sad.

    grown up children.

    they probably had plenty of opportunity

    I suppose even nazi-types like you are human beings too. who else should be exterminated? go down the list. get it off your chest.
