She was sitting in front of our county courthouse, talking out loud to herself, then this. Such despair. I wanted to go talk to her and buy her a meal or even just give her money or a hug, but I had an unmistakable knowing that it would have upset her. I've thought about her since - wondering if she has eaten since I saw her, or where she sleeps. It's not a positive, feel-good image, but sadly... it is the real life of far too many souls cherished by God.

Well DONE, Sandy. On all of it. (I gave your image an 8. I give your compassion a 10.)

Very well framed, with the tree beyond. (I'm not sure if that's a correct use of the word "plight" but that's neither here nor there as far as the photograph is concerned.) Lovely light, great tones. Good detail where you need it.

An anguished time, for sure, and timely moment caught well.
