Poverty - Bum

There is a simplisity to being someone like this gentleman. Granted he probably has something wrong with me. But there is a freedom that I view in being a bum. Nobody to answer to nowhere to be. No worries as we preciev them, I'm sure he's got worries. I like to take pictures of bums, I've got alot more but this is the most recent one. I hope you enjoy it. This is the last picture I took of this gentle man becuase he caught me and after he knew I was there It's not going to be natural any more so I moved on.

    I hope you are using the term bum correctly. Vagrant may be a better word to use though still presumptuous. In any case this man certainly doesn't appear to be lazy otherwise he would surely reduce his load into a train of carts. Then again he may just be lacking resourcefulness.
    What do you read into his stare? I see, "Oh shit, there is another asshole thinking I'm a bum... Now, where is that recycling bin?"
