Meet John

This is John. He's homeless. I snapped John in downtown Las Vegas, as part of my ongoing participation in the $2 Portrait Project. Anyone who asks for money gets their portrait taken for $2.

John was an affable fellow. The last time I was downtown, I saw John hanging out with a friend, resting their food and drinks on the rim of a trashcan. I saw them in the same place during my last visit.

I'm starting to think this trashcan has kind of been staked out by John and his friend. They just hang out there. It's their spot.

Time to remember how lucky we are. Again.
