What I do here is go from the pose and the attitude to the portions of the sign. They speak to one another. The "since" is kind of open ended, and the partial "hotel" tells another kind of story.

This is an image that says so much!! Clearly the man has suffered some disappointments but somehow I feel he is a survivor. Wish him luck!!

HTD!!
