Collecting My Daily Bread by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

This photograph was taken in a regular busy day at a neighborhood in Arecibo. Taking advantage of the traffic every day, this man crosses along the street waiting for the street lights to turn red so he can make his next move. Maybe he won’t make a fortune, but definitely, he will make his daily bread. I caught him looking straight at me so I had to give him a few dollars.
