I truly appreciate it.

Ethel has been a fixture in the financial district/chinatown area of Honolulu for a decade or so, now. She finds shelter at night in various covered doorways in the blocks around the building I'm at. I see her everyday, pushing her cart and gathering plastic bags, cans, and bottles. I'm not really sure what she does with them.

Here's an outtake from the previous block as she crossed the intersection:

Kudos for taking what I thought was a stupid challenge topic and giving us an image with a story and a heart, very nicely done,

This is a classic piece of art, Mark. It should be next to Robs.

You did the team proud, Mark. A great out-of-the-box take on 'shopping carts' with real feeling. Congrats on the TT, it has been great playing with you during this TPL!

I'm sure it would have had much higher points.

Ehh...I figured you wanted the HM. ;)

But, actually...I went with what the majority of the team thought would do best. I liked it better, too.

I didn't vote in the challenge but this was a stand out. Opulent, in her own way, which is complemented by the golden arches. Congrats on top 10!

Powerful photo. Contrast of wealth. And even though the yellow lines look to be level, she's still on an uphill climb.

Ethel needs to get ride of some belonging to make her life easier.

Me, too.

Ethel has her work cut out for her. She's a lot like me - needs to do some serious downsizing.... Works well in color with the yellow pulling it all together.
