Still one of my favorite political cartoons ever. As relevant now as in 2006.
I’ve posted this before, I don’t really care.
So, this happened.
I’m not sure which is more gratifying, that this image has been viewed (and favorited) so many times in my Flickr stream, or that it’s a photo taken with my wonderfully fun Nikon P310 point-and-shoot, without a tripod.
For the most part, Westfield, New York is a beautiful village. However, it doesn’t take long to get a feel for its other side. Take this former business along North Portage Road for instance. A short walk along the south side had me finding bags of possessions and caches of canned goods—clear signs of the homeless. And then, rounding the rear corner of the building I found a man in a makeshift shelter, probably just as unnerved seeing me as I him. I never know how to react when I come upon an individual living like this…but I waved and said hi and he did the same. I quickly finished checking out the building and left.
How do you handle encounters with homeless people?

Hey, I find chairs in every explore, but this is the first I’ve found used as wall art.
