A superb documentary portrait which conveys the sadness of his situation and a great intro, Tony. There's enough wealth in this country to accommodate these guys, if distributed more fairly. I do hope he manages to find somewhere soon.

A brilliant image capturing a whole real life story in a frame, Tony. Excellent!

Whenever I see people living in such unfortunate and often unnecessary circumstances, (for most this could be fixed if the people in power chose), I can't help but think that they were once someones little boy, someones son, with all the hopes and dreams that children have, and for whatever mistakes they may have made, or maybe just fate, they deserve better. Sad

Sorry, I don't have the capacity to stay serious for long, great picture that it is, it reminds me of the Vicar of Dibley sketch with the farmer on stage in the church hall demonstrating his farting duck. Sorry. Blush

Great shots Tony!

Two great shots Tony .
We should look after our own homeless people in this country and not send as much aid to some of the countries that use the money on space exploration,
or corrupt governments

Image first. Fantastic and empathetic portrait of Kelvin and Yoki. Great B/W.

His situation is tragic and echoed around the country. We are judged by how we care for our most vulnerable in society so we don't have to think hard on that one...

There but for the Grace of God...

Pretty sad how much money we send off to far flung parts of the globe ...yet this poor person has six months to wait for a roof over his head . Drives me bonkers ...thx for the introduction Tony,
The hint of a smile in the version shows he still has hope...
Cheers Waltb
