I felt something very special when I took this gentleman’s picture. Even though he was dirty and sitting on the sidewalk, he straightened up and combed his hair with his hand when I asked for his permission to take his picture. He even smiled at me. It was obvious to me that he had not let his situation in life take away his dignity.
Even though the world passes him by on a daily basis, much like the car speeding by, he reminded me that all members of the human race possess dignity and deserve respect.
