I truly feel sorry for people who are homeless or going without food in our society. I am also not naive and know there are some people,hopefully a small minority, who are not truly homeless and just beg because they can. In any case, if you are helpless and need to beg but some effort in to it. Treat begging and living on the street as your temporary job and create a better sign at least. And for god’s sake if you have to read on the job you can do better than James Patterson. You can see other photojournalist images and buy apparel and prints on my commercial site.
