Somewhere In Between (Re-worked)

This might look posed, but it's not. If memory serves, this is the last time I saw Tore. He was leaning up against this wall looking quite miserable. I walked up and started to take my shot when he looked up. Most times, when he used to see me, he would strike a pose, then hold out his hand and ask if I had any money to spare.

 

I think he is still alive. Mother claims to have seen him from the bus one day, but he was frequenting another part of town.

 

He is not homeless, he has a small bedsit, and a small stipend, which doesn't seem to stretch for every need.

 

After I took this, I went and got us some coffee and we sat on a bench in the park and talked for a while - and when I left I handed him a 100 kroner note.

 

I really like him, he is such a gentle soul, and I wish he had a better quality of life.

 

ETA: On May 20, 2015, Tore Syvert Moen passed away.
