I don't believe that homeless men set out to make homelessness their final destination in life. Some simply take a wrong turn that unfortunately leaves them lost and on the streets. Through a series of unfortuate events, with a recession adding into the mix, some end up in dire straights and never fully recover.
I took this shot of this homeless man and kept wondering what's his story. Did he once aspire to become a lawyer, doctor, athlete? He could be someone's father, uncle, brother, and yes son. Did bad decisions lead him here? Who am I to judge? My heart goes out to the homeless.
