I found this homeless man and his cat travelling along Reno's 4th St corridor. The man tows a cart behind his bicycle. The cart is piled high with all the man's possessions and the cat rides on top of the pille. The man tells me he is going to get his life together "any day now." I paid him $20 to take his picture. He thanked me and said "God bless you."

March 2010, Reno, NV
