Down And Nearly Out

    Newer Older

    This chap was by Tottenham Court Road station. I called 999 services because as you can see he was in a really bad way. Within a few minutes the police appeared and spoke to him and then the ambulance people made him more comfortable and then took him to hospital.

    He was sitting on the path with hundreds of tourists walking by. I saw a young lady of about twenty try to help this chap get his jacket on but by this stage I don't think he had any idea that anybody was there. He did not seem to be able to respond to any questions.

    Thank you for all the group invites which I am happy to accept but there are too many for me to go and reciprocate with my comments in all the groups so please do not invite me if your rules demand for me to comment as it would be just too time consuming. Any free time I will be out taking a few more shots :-)

    I have subsequently reprocessed this shot and improved the image quality see

      I am loving the whole series. You are very brave, on many levels, photographing the desperate.
