Comments: Asleep

it's strange that streetscenes like this are not scandalous
but common
in big cities of rich countries
all over the world

This guy might not even be homeless, it's the same guy every few days/week, new shoes, clean feet, just complains about cops screwing his stuff up with his chalk. He's one of the few that get no piety from me. I've seen homeless in Toronto, if he is, he does very well for himself.

If a picture is worth thousand of words, this one is worth of 10,000 words. Beautiful.

if i would be poor, hungry and cold
if i would belong to "the other half"
i would not lay there.
i think i would be looking for a more sheltered place,
would'nt you?

i thought a lot about this photograph after reading Sam's (the commentor's) comment.
is it not (only) poverty that makes him lay in the middle of the street.
looks like a kind of protest.
or - sorry - delibrate provocation.
he is not covered with tatter.
consider the striking place where he couches himself.
makes "bourgeois" cell-phone-users take a loop-way
Sam (the photograper), what a profound and enigmatic pic you presented us?
