I thought his hand resembled God's hand in Michelangelo's 'Creation of Adam'. So if he was God, I suppose a better title would have been "One of Us"...the Joan Osborne song...though I'm guessing that would have been way too deep for the connection I wanted. But current reality, in my opinion has yet to actually prove the existence of a God so the whole concept is pretty much useless at which point this is just another poor homeless man. So I agree with the score.

This is an excellent photograph. I wish you had gotten closer though. The telephoto kind of flattens everything to no good effect.

I think I would have cropped out the front of that last bus....I say that cause I can find nothing else to pick on. This is a nice image despite the hard life that is portrayed.
