    This guy was very happy to pose for a picture, i like how 'Bed, Bath, and beyond' stands out on his cart because its like thats the closest he'll be to a bed and a bath, i dunno the words to say what im tryn to say, but u get the point. He was a very nice guy.

    This guy didn't care if i took his picture or not. I asked him and he just said "whatever." then i gave him a bottle of water and a poptart and he was very happy. (i took this b4 i gave him the food and drink)

    Nice work Joey. Best images I've seen from you on here. The vignetting adds a nice touch.
