If Only Tonight We Could Sleep

If Only Tonight We Could Sleep

I’ve seen this man in the wheelchair asleep off of Market Street a few times. I’ve even seen people call an ambulance for him thinking he needed medical attention. He simply falls asleep and stays there. The lady, on the other hand, panhandles change from people walking by. I often see her close to my office on one of the public benches, just hanging out as the world passes her by.

  1. Wow! It’s crazy that he’s just sleeping. I wonder if he comes in and out of consciousness or if he sleeps for an extended period of time.

  2. What a great street capture.
    I love the smile of that woman. Somehow it makes you feel better seeing her smiling 🙂

  3. Thanks Hoi & Ilan…and thanks for visiting :).

  4. Her smile is very telling – it’s almost giving something away. I want to enjoy the smile, but in a way i just feel guilty.
