Homless man asleep on steps

 on 


I took this photograph of a homeless man asleep on the steps of the Post Office building in the middle of lunch time. I decided to isolate him from the crowd in the photograph so this powerful image does not contain any distractions. Anyone who follows my photo blog knows I take many photographs of homeless people to show their live in the city. However lately those images and scenes are becoming uneasily frequent and the shape these people are in increasingly difficult. Although he seems to be sleeping peacefully I can see some pain in his face.
