Photo license: © All rights reserved

I came out of back alley and encountered this man.
He had just left the place where he had been living.He was pushing an additional 2 shopping carts tied to the one you see.A car was in the way on the street so I couldn't get them in the photo.I carried an 8x10 print for weeks but never saw him again.
