Funny a theme on poverty is running on the day I choose to post up this shot. I have been planning for some time to do a series on the homeless, finding the images though is easier said than done.
Not too many homeless in Milton Keynes. I generally have to be in a city like London before I can get any images, and thats if they want to be photographed. This image is what I see when I look at the homeless, dirty, down on their luck, wanting to be faceless.
I see the homeless, I do not judge them, we all live with our individual demons. It is a constant reminder for me to thank the good Lord for what I have, a roof over my head, clean clothes, a loving family, a loving wife, a car, shoes, a comb, the little & big luxuries I may take for granted. It tugs my heart when I see people like this, I wish there was more I could do, I wish there was more that was done to help people like these, but I also remind myself that some of them are out in the streets by choice, and some have the choice made for them.
Spare a thought for that nameless homeless person you walk past everyday, thank the big guy for the love, grace and mercies he has bestowed on you.
I really am sorry I have not been blogging as much as I used to. I have taken the plunge to becoming a Pro Photographer and life is so hectic and busy these days, trying to set up things. I do try and respond to comments and visit blogs when I can, so please keep visiting & commenting, I will keep posting. Do all have a lovely weekend.
Anyone looking for the services of Suby as a Photographer, you know what to do..... (email me in case some are wondering what. LOL)
