This is Wayne. And this is Wayne's world. He is one of many local homeless people. Most days he comes to the local Asda and sits here outside the doors sheltering from the weather. He is not aggressive or 'in your face' but sits quietly watching the day go by. Over the past few weeks I have got to know him. He loves to chat and he has many tales to tell. Some kind people will give him something to eat or drink, but most pass him by never making eye contact. The management of the store don't want him there as they find him distasteful and he is often moved on. In the evenings he heads off to the cold weather project accommodation, but I have seen him sleeping here when he's not been able to get a bed.
I like Wayne, he's a real character and he's still managed to retain a philosophical outlook on life, as well as a wicked sense of humour.
I have several more shots which I hope to share with you over the coming days.
I would value your comments about this picture and all suggestions will be gratefully received.
Enjoy your day.
