Over at www.iheartfaces.com this week, the theme is "Bundled Up'. I have tons of photos of my kids all bundled up that I could enter, but I chose this photo instead...
This is a photo I took while doing a photography field trip with my photo club. We went to Atlanta, first to Piedmont Park and then on to an area known as 'Little 5 Points'. This photo was taken at 'Little 5' where we met this gentleman who was homeless. We started talking to him and he told us a bit of his story. He told us he had quit drinking and was trying to get on with his life.
I hope he has.
He said he didn't mind at all that we took his picture and we all snapped a few. Then we all dug in our pockets and gave him some 'spare change' and a friend of mine hugged him and told him she loved him. We all told him good-bye and started to walk away...that is when I turned and snapped this last photo of him, deep in thought.
I think about him from time to time and pray he is well and no longer out on the streets. No one should be without a place to call home.
Come on over to www.iheartfaces.com this week to see all the beautiful photos of people bundled up against the cold.
