Q: Street Photography

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Out doing street photography, I found this jobless, homeless man, rummaging through trash can's in a back ally just a block away from multi million dollar beach front homes. I asked him if he minded me taking a few shots of him, I listened to his story and asked him to just carry on as if I wasn't there, then he picked this photo out of the trash and showed it to me. The two words clash but somehow tell a story. Trashy fashion? What our society tells us is amazing.
Other photos I have of this man with his face more obscured with motion art more artful and telling.
This was taken in Orange County, Ca.

    I have to add a comment of my own, sorry about the miss spelled words, more like missed key strokes, in any case, it's suppose to say...The two worlds clash but somehow tell a story. And, mans face more obscured with motion are more artful. I occurred to me after looking at the photo more, that this photo I took to me, anyway is actually a reflection of what our society seems to value more. Woman in expensive clothing, held on a pedestal and the man...jobless, homeless, resolved to have to dig trough trash to find his treasure for his next meal.

    This photo is as much as bout our society and what it values than any I have ever seen. Sad.
