    Heres a little picture I took the other weekend. I was walking by and noticed this lady sleeping at the bus stop with a blanket over her head. The problem I have with shooting homeless people is I don't want to feel like i'm exploiting them, thats why I like the covered face.

    I also found the add to be ironic, being there is so many homeless in the city. This shot didn't convert over that well, but printed it looks much nicer. You'll have to forgive me for my lack of cropping ect, i'm at work and no internet / ps at home (just started taking pictures)

    i like the concept. if you have already cropped it i would uncrop it and put her foot back in the shot.

    ;) thanks.

    I'm going to go downtown this weekend and try and get a nice set of pictures of homeless people. I've actually spoke with alot of them and heard great stories.

    Yea, unfortunatly I didn't crop that and only have the one shot. This weekend is going to be really dark and rainy, which should be fun.
