A Homeless on the Sidewalk by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

Every where we go we’ll find them in the streets walking, sitting on the sidewalks, and even laying down sleeping, specially in New York City and other parts in the USA. Walking through the streets of Times Square there was a man sitting on the sidewalk gently counting his money that people been giving while passing by him. Some people helped out, others will ignore, but is real life. I took this photo on his level; maybe it would’ve been better if I took the picture from the side for the background to be blur. However, I’m sure there are going to be better shots.
