I met this man in downtown Houston. I sat down with him and bought him breakfast and just talked. He had moved down from Detroit in search of work.

    I've always told myself, if I ever get this photo published in JPG I will give him the $100 if I can find him again. I have not been able to find him since I took the picture about 2 years ago.

    His eyes permeate the shot. You find yourself bound to stare back.

    Living near detroit I see this everyday, its heartbreaking. I always wanted to capture this, but I was always afraid too. This is a beautiful photograph.
