Homeless dude

I've passed this guy a few time in Hawaiian Gardens on my way to work. I've never really seen his face. There was a time when I did not notice people like him. Then I started to shoot at least one picture every day and suddenly they were everyplace. I never noticed how many homeless or marginal people there were on the streets, the number is quite large. I counted 14 persons yesterday, most around a stretch of the San Gabriel River near long beach. I think they sleep near the bridges.

I have a friend name Susan who feeds the homeless. I think it might be time I pitched in too.

May 22 - Soup kitchen in Skid Row, downtown LA (*limited volunteers, can't have too many cooks in the kitchen!)

More info posted on my events page in my blog or just shoot me a message.

I did the postal food drive today. I feel sorry for my postman. I hope he brought along a cart to carry all the cans I see people putting out.
