A homeless man, carrying all his possessions, walks past the St. Louis County Courthouse in Clayton. This is an affluent suburb, full of shiny office towers and expensive houses. It makes me wonder where he was coming from and going to.
There are some ethical questions in street photography. I took this while seated in my car across the street. It's what some photographers call sniping, taking a shot of someone in public without their permission, a quick hit and run. The detail of the man's face isn't clear enough in this picture, but he saw me taking his picture and stared at me. There was no other contact between us. I felt uncomfortable, even a bit guilty afterwards. What would have done in the same circumstances?
TOMORROW: Which of these things does not belong?
