While strolling with streets of downtown Raleigh with my wife and Nikon DSLR in hand I ran across this gentlemen that ask for a couple of dollars to get him something to eat. My wife insisted that we buy him a pizza, but he wasn't going for the food purchase. So I offered him $2.00 is he let me take photos of him. He agreed and I think the $2.00 was well worth the images I captured of this gentlemen.
Afterwards, he admitted he was going to buy beer with the money. Oh well. I got the images and he got the $2.00 to do whatever he wanted to do with it. I think I might be on to something. My thinking cap is on to capture some great image of folks that claims to be homeless and those that are homeless. Also have a conversation with him/her to find out about their story, background and how they got to this point in their life. What if I captured and printed the images and presented them to that person. What are you thoughts?
