This was taken this morning at work in Piccadilly, Westminster. Ironically a few hundred yards from the Ritz. Pure desperation but at least he had a few contributions. Apologies for the quality, but I had to share the image.

I agree, but I don't think it's a calculated decision. His priorities are probably placing the cardboard beneath the sleeping bag and making sure the hospital blanket is large enough for the pair of them.

Sad yet warming image, he has his dog as a companion, something he clearly cares for. It makes me wonder how many have survived this winter, living like this.

A 'Civilised' society is one that looks after its old, its weak and its poor. I think we are failing. Sad Some choose this way of life, but only a very few.

I decided against putting money in the cup, but gave him a sandwich instead.

My son did much the same with a 'hungry beggar' outside a fast food chain, only the result was different He went in and bought a burger and chips for him. The 'beggar' threw the food at him and said he only wanted money! Sad
