Homeless Mike

Mike is a frequent guest with other street folk at a soup kitchen where I an a volunteer. He gratiously allowed me to capture his image. I personally like this photo for the eye contact that conveys his life experiences.

    Thanks all for your thoughtfull comments. This image did not happen without presenting some challenges. Specifically Mikes hand. It almost appeared that his hand was at least one stop more than the rest of the image. Some folks brought this to my attention so I made some adjustments in my editing program. Still. the editing still left something to be desired. Leroy
