An Ederly Homeless Woman by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

This photo was one of the first ones I took that day. After I parked, I walked down the sidewalk and saw this lady just about to lay next to the tree. When she was about to bend her knees to lay down, she looked straight at the camera. I just stood there and took a few shots hoping she didn’t get upset.
