  1. They say all photos tell a story. This one tells a full-length novel. What a powerful image.

  4. This one really makes you stop and think.

    You could do a great photo book with your talent, Daryl.

  5. I like that this is a people and not a critter. Though a critter with its people would have been touching in this situation.

    You see The Soloist yet?

  6. Jeane said it all. I was thinking about the homeless I see every morning walking into work.....more today than I usually do.....Covered with a box. Sleeping in a doorway.

  8. I remember the old "Chock Full" commercial; "Better coffee a millionaire's money can't buy." I look at this photo and that just jumps into my head. Wonderful! Sobering! Tragic!

  11. Too many homeless in the world. This is a moving post and beautiful photo. I love that the sign wishes us Happy Holidays, that would make me give him something immediately! So powerful this.

  14. I agree with Robin that this photo speaks a novel. So sad that we in America have so many homeless.

  17. Awesome image. Simply awesome. some pictures are worth 1000 words, but this one is priceless.

    I didn't realize you were in the CDP crowd!

  18. Wow. This picture really does tell the story better than words...

  19. The image in monochrome is powerful and perfect. I wonder if WAITING is bothersome for him? I think WAITING for food and shelter must take a toll on one's personality...I wonder what the story behind this person is?

  20. A sad, but true, take on the "waiting" theme. And a very nice photograph.

  21. Waiting and waiting and waiting ...
    with no end in sight. Poignant and provocative, Daryl!

  22. I wish I could reach into the photo and drop a buck in the can. I'll come upon enough opportunities in my own city, of course. More's the shame.

    Nice photo, though. Gritty. Real. I can feel the cold.

    Says so many things.
    So many.

  26. I teach my Little T there are so many others less fortunate than us. I am proud to say we are a family of givers. This photo is one that the whole world needs to see. Great job again Daryl!

  27. That photo speaks volumes. I give to the Salvation Army because they are wise and know who to help the most.

  28. Gave me chills, Daryl. It's a fantastic photo...heart-wrenching but fantastic.

  29. Last year we decided to forego all the Christmas lunacy and gave a $1,500 donation to the Jacksonville City Rescue Mission. In lieu of gifts to ourselves we asked our family to make donations to the Mission in our names. We also volunteer to serve holiday meals at the Mission. There is no more fulfilling feeling in the world than to put your focus (and dollars) on others. We plan to continue the tradition and hope other family members will follow our lead.

    Fabulous photo. Touching and disturbing.

    Congratulations on your POTW mention over at Hilary's.

  31. Hi...I visiting via Hilary at the Smitten Image.
    Great photography, but a sad image.
    Reality must be recorded.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hello, I'm here via Hilary's blog also.

    What an emotionally evocative picture.

    Isn't it amazing? Our lives, the ones we are living right now, sound as fantastical as a fairy tale to those that are Homeless.

    It's very sobering to realize, as that picture just made me realize, every single day of my life, I am living someones wildest dream.

  33. Great shot! Unfortunate this is the state of things today.

    Congrats on POTW

  34. Sorry, I meant to add 'sad isn't it?' but I was in such a hurry and had to collect my kid from school. I also meant to add congrats on the POTW mention, but I forgot that too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. And now here I am to congratulate YOU! This is wonderful: perfect and poignant, so well deserving of Hilary's honor. I agree, it should be framed--even postered!

  36. I would have to take this person, he or she, to a good restaurant and provide a meal. Then perhaps a room for a couple of days...a new outfit...one person to one person...its not always children in need at Christmas...great shot
