Old Man with a Cane


While I was recently at Pitt Street Mall I have noticed a spot with exceptional light conditions courtesy of reflections from surrounding buildings. It was as if someone created a large stage especially for photography. All I needed was a person in it to add interest and character.


Old man at a bus stop


As I was returning from my daily walk today I came across this old man asleep in the bus shelter. He had no shirt on and his torso was exposed to the sun. It is worth mentioning it was well over 30C today. There was a beer bottle next to man and his rather poor state may indicate he was homeless. Usually in cases like that I ask a city ranger to intervene, to check on the man. Sun stroke is not something I wish upon anyone. There were no city rangers near by and after getting some verbal abuse from the man after asking if he is OK I walked away.
