The details, that fingertip, and that particular, blue Bible.

Spirit of the pavement. Here, and then gone, yet we see him still.

God, these comments. You are all poets. A heartfelt portrait, Kevin.

A man seeking answers like everybody else.

Wow. I've been thinking about this image since you posted it on FB the other day. Beautiful, just beautiful.

These portraits are leaving me a little breathless and sad. You always capture a little detail that speaks to our shared humanity. For me its not the bible in this one but that hat.

So many photographers make specimens out of the impoverished. Too often there is a kind of invisible barrier between the photographer and the subject -- with the homeless or disenfranchised being just that, subjects. You always present people with such dignity and grace.

Beautiful work, K.
