Trying to get back on my feet


I needed to leave the office today few minutes before 5pm to catch the early train. On the corner of George and Street I have noticed this young man, with a sign that he is homeless and that he is “trying to get back on his feet”. more

Man reading a magazine


I admire how some people can relax anywhere. Take for example this young man in the photograph. He is seating on the typical Sydney post in the Pitt Street Mall and reading a magazine. Nothing around him matters. It is just him and the article he is reading.

I could understand this on a nice, warm day. Today, however was rather cold and windy, not to mention wet after the morning shower. Yet to this young man it seems irrelevant. He is just enjoying his solitary moment in the middle of a busy street.
