Now, That Feels Pretty Good

Today, I got a wonderful message through Flickr.


Hi Scott,

I work at a homeless shelter in WI and we wanted to know if we could use your photo "Dan the Man" in a mailing we're going to be doing this Fall, or anytime in the future. These mailings generate the funds that enable us to rescue, rebuild and renew the lives of those who come to us for help. The photo would be attributed to you.

Here's Dan.

Always kind of liked that portrait. I think it's the juxtaposition of Dan's soft, seemingly kind face, and the lights of Vegas. It's a contrast you see a lot downtown. The glitz, the lights, the revelry. And feet away, people begging for money because they're hungry (or more often, thirsty).

It's nice to be able to help organizations that do the actual work of helping people. Snapping a photo or two seems easy by comparison, so how could I ever say "no"?
