    ...for an opportunity to get your ear. 'ask me why i'm on a hunger strike', ha, i would, but judging from the subway wrappers, i don't think you are :greenpbl: ...if you're gonna do this sorta thing....go all out....no water - nothing...sit there until you start to shrivel up or bush finally comes out to talk to ya....make it count son....:Joker:

    John, that is absolutely hilarious, but the way you framed the wrapper and water bottle is pure photographic genius. Gotta love a "protesters" with a sense of humor. :lmao:

    Terrific photo, you captured the scene and told the story through the photograph exceptionally well. Well spotted and framed.

    Great shot Jon. I agree with John E. You really did manage to capture a story in a photograph. The wrappers, the water, and buddy is reading a paper, probably checkin out local restaurants. Very cool shot.

    Going out on a limb here, but couldn't a public trash can in a public park hold someone else's trash besides the person sitting closest?

    Besides, we don't know why he's on a hunger strike, the sign only says to ask him...

    I go on a hunger strike several times a week--usually because in the rush of getting us all out the door I've forgotten to pack a lunch.....

    Just a little devil's advocate. ;)

    well, there's now an extra (insert post views) people around the world who now wonder why he is on hunger strike - so despite the negative tone of the original post, if the object of his protest was to generate publicity, it has worked!!

    his answer would likely be concerning an issue that his mommy can't cook.

    can't say I feel for him, but cool shot Jon! always on the edge of controversy!
