another story says: wonderful portrait. i find in fascinating and heartbreaking that i so readily see the beauty in her face, captured in this portrait, viewed from the safety of my home and computer screen; if i'm honest, in person i may likely avert my eyes from her gaze, walk quickly by, praying that she would not look at me, pretending she did not exist. thank you for forcing us all to look her in the eyes. -- 04:22AM, May 19, 2006. says: she is so beautiful...inside and out you can see (those eyes!) your narratives add so much more to the portrait than meets the eye. your point of departure is really mesmerizing and absolutely as real as real can get. well done!! -- 04:33AM, May 19, 2006.

These images remind me of when I was a wanderer in my late teens and early 20s... I sometimes lived in an old diesel suburban. However, I always had something to return to, school and family.

carf says: I'm really glad that there are so many who visit and appreciate your highly professional and ethical street portraits. It is important to share such records as those you constantly and so meticulously are capturing and presenting on Flickr. I really hope that some of these people are moved to do something worthy for the at-risk kids growing up in their own communities, wherever these may be, before those kids reach the stage of hopelessness. Only then will we see less homeless people living on the streets. We all need to care for those who have been less fortunate in their journey through life. In many cases, just a little more personal love and caring can rescue lives. Gregory - The Hummingbird Project (Projeto Beija-Flor) -- 10:10PM, May 24, 2006.

eyewashdesign: A. Golden says: Am in tears. It has all been said...your work is inspirational & has (re)moved me in an instant from the callous shell I realise I have grown as an adaption to urban survival. There is a saying in NYC that everyone has a special "homeless" person he or she has adopted and I have a few. Just last night, the one I call "Santa Clause" - an elderly man with TB - ... the one I "adopted" upon arrival, surfaced after a very long absence. After arriving to the ferry terminal amongst a dizzying array of fleet week soldiers parading about, I noticed an ambulance - lights blaring. Waiting, I watched as the EMT crew walked out in very casual manner - they were visibly in "routine" mode. Then, I watched as "Santa" came slowly trailing - now hobbling & relying heavily upon his walking stick. After speaking with the EMT agents, they explained "Santa" didn't want to go with them & that he wasn't "cooperating". I told them I knew him & might I have a try? He was filthier than ever, stank & bore the sad look of a broken man who had witnessed too many tradgeties of a difficult life. I took him by the hand & he looked into my eyes, began crying & said, "The Pretty One!" - his name for me. I gave him a cigarette, some moeny & helped him into the ambulance. Afterwards, I stood silently thinking & realised in all these years, after making & bringing him food & money, that I still don't know his name. Is that part important? It seems you have not only learned a name, but have also succeeded in putting an honest "face" on homlessness. Your work is wonderfully soulful. Thanks for the humbling moment. -- 07:41PM, May 26, 2006.
