Left out in Loneliness by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

Walking through the streets of St. Pete, a small town near Tampa I saw this elderly homeless homeless sitting on a bench near the river. He was eating something from a can, couldn’t tell what it was. Well, the point is there are many old people left out, living in streets; whatever reason it is, they are living in a lonely world; one can tell by just looking at this image.

Jose was born in the small tropical Island of Puerto Rico. Since a child he always had dreams, dreams to become a someone and travel the world. Then when he came to the USA, he confronted hard situations where streets, alcohol, and drugs was always there. However, after many years, one day he woke up and said “this is not for me”, so that’s when he went and completed rehabilitation.

He wants to thank Light and Composition and its staff for letting him follow his dreams and achieve his goals and travel the world to show everyone that its possible even if you are 37 years old, is never to late for anything.
