A faded dream

A faded dream
While shooting graffiti in downtown LA I spotted this homeless man glancing at the artwork of the car. I could picture him remembering what it was like when he had a home, a car, and a better life. My wish is that he finds it once again.

Thanks Bojan. Wish I could take him to your last picture and let him walk up that trail and get away from the city.

Thank you Lindley. This was a Saturday morning after a rain. We found it difficult to find people to add interest to our street art shoot, so when one came along, we both made a mad dash to try to capture it.

Great capture, Dale -- love your use of selective color! We were just down in LA too, but visiting the grandkids.
