In Minneapolis, there are a lot of homeless people, and I'm sure some fauxhomeless people. Always with the signs and such - especially at busy intersections. I always wanted to take some pictures of them, but I'm in a quandry. Would it be morally acceptable if I were to give the guy $10 or so, have him sign a waiver, then shoot away taking pics of him doing his thing? I have in my mind a shot of something like a well dressed gentleman in a very pricey car holding out a $1 or whatever to the guy. Think that would be cool? I have several homesless 'friends', like this guy Steve, who I talk to all the time (And he almost always tears up when I call him my friend) and buy lunch for, give money & smokes too, etc. So I know they are pretty decent people. They have such character, especially for some of the situations I see - like a grubby homeless friend names John who looks 104, acts 30, and has been on the streets for some 30 years. A site of him in front of high class areas really intrigues me. I care not what the general public would thing, but I'm wondering if it would be morally ok. I mean, half of them are friends I've talked to, so I think it'd be ok with me and them. Any thoughts>?
