Nice photo, can't help but feel the need for someone to tell her the help she needs is to make the decision to walk away ...

First off, Great capture! Really very nice job. Sad photo. But the saddest part is that it looks like a man printed the writing on the cardboard--- maybe the abuser himself making her beg for money?


...But still the clever north wind was not satisfied. It spoke to her of towns yet to be visited, friends yet to be discovered...

Nice photo, have you de-saturated the right side? It looks as though there is no colour there.

If this person has the courage to sit on the street like this, then surely they have the courage to walk away from the situation that put them there - unless of course (heaven forbid) this is just another scam.

Thats always what stays with me when I see things like this...

We had a gal here two summers ago that sat in the merging curb area and had a sign that said
"Trying to get back home"..people would toss money at her while they were turning..
She has a small crew now working for her.:confused:


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Thanx alot guys for viewing and comments.

Yes i did a little desaturating on the entire photo.

Yes unfortunately u always wonder if theyre up to some scam. Maybe she just go into a fight, and thought the black eye mite help more people feel sorry for her.
She only knows the truth.....

Thanx again, Al

Thanx.

Well i dont think thats how sloppy she necessarily writes.

I think it looks sloppy because of the lack of a good writing instrument on the streets.
If u look next to the A in "ABUSIVE", it looks like she tried first with something that didnt write goood, and therefor came out all sloppy looking.
So i think she could have written it.

Thanx again, Al

All I meant was that it is more block, print and capital letter-style and more men write that way then women... not that it is sloppy at all- I actually have the sloppiest writing of just about any woman I know. Sheesh!:confused:

unfortunatly, it doesnt matter who wrote it, if A police officer sees this, shouldnt he stop and at least question her or bring her to a shelter? If she is being beaten by someone, surly there must be something authorities should be doing for her. no? Like someone says, if she is that afraid, why would she sit on the streets with a sign instead of going to a shelter and getting away?

Just my own personal opinion, but generally I don't feel sorry for the homeless when I've seen what they're offered and they constantly turn down. They have the opportunity they just choose not to go for it. The kicker to it all are the ones that beg for food money then spend it on alcohol, drugs, and/or cigarettes. They obviously weren't hungry enough to make that sacrifice. So because of all that and call it a stereotype or whatever you may want, I personally don't feel sorry for them. They choose to be what they are.
