Perspective

The people of Covent Garden and Camden just love having their picture taken - I guess they get it all the time and thankfully they seem to embrace it, even thrive on it ...

Ben, in the last picture, is one of the reasons I go out on the streets with the camera. I took Ben's photo, and I would have had a chat with him but he was asleep: I'm not about to wake a guy who may not have been asleep long, but I popped across the road and bought him a coffee and a sandwich. Ben's sign says he been homeless, on and off, for 14 years, he's NOT addicted to drugs nor drink, but fallen on hard times. I believe any of us are only a few bad decisions away from sleeping without a roof over our heads, like Ben.
