I had a strong sense of déjà vu as I was photographing this young woman. She was occupying two benches on a train, talking loudly and for a very long time over a mobile phone to her friends and… she had these shiny, bright Dr. Martens boots firmly places on the seat.
This is a very special photograph for me. Firstly because I did not have to ask this homeless man if I can take a photograph of him. He asked me to take a photo. Secondly, this is a very rare occasion where a homeless person was actually very happy.
And the secret behind his joy? The man received a brand new pair of Dr. Martens boots. He was overjoyed with them and asked everyone around if they liked his new, red boots.
