Juxtaposition

Another new (this one, a beautiful wood-paneled and modern) mansion going up in the neighborhood.

This one, across the street from a park where, just 80 yards from the front door of this single-family home I spotted a man sleeping on a bench at 7:10 this morning surrounded by a few bags that appeared to be his net assets.

  1. A photographer friend said, "I really wish you'd taken a picture of that homeless person with the house in the background."

    Yes, it would have been interesting to see, but there's something about taking photos of strangers, and for me, something really wrong about taking a photograph of a homeless person. Sort of an objectification, methinks. And they have so little privacy as it is...

    Just my two cents in response.
