This photo was taken outside the Nederlander theater in New York City in June 2007. Prior to its capture, I had been simply admiring the paintings on the walls of the buildings. It was not until I had the photo developed that I realized how blind I had been- a homeless man sat there, too. It truly opened my eyes to how overlooked the plights of so many are in today's society.

i wouldnt have noticed the man if you hadnt pointed him out. most people wouldnt have. we have trained ourselves to see ol the beauty in life and ignore the sad and ugly parts.
