She calls out to the man on the street, "Sir, can you help me?

It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep. Is there somewhere you can tell me?"

He walks on, doesn't look back, he pretends he can't hear her

He starts to whistle as he crosses the street, seems embarassed to be there.......

Oh, think twice, it's just another day for you and me in paradise...

Think Twice!

    A very sensitive and moving portrait Michael! For me the grain (noise) adds a sense of symbolism.
