Homeless in Paradise III

Homeless in Paradise III
Slowly, an obviously destitute man makes his way up the beach searching every trash receptacle for returnable cans or bottles. He is a mere few hundred feet from luxury high-rise condominiums starting at $1,000,000 USD for a living space of 1000 square feet. I photographed him several times on different days.

Eine interessante Szene...

It was the oddness of the scene that attracted me. So much money flying around, yet here is this man - probably one our war veterans suffering from mental illness, drug abuse and alcoholism.
