Breaking dawn

...as the sun rises, Donovan a homeless fella crawled out from under the bridge. I asked him to stand in the frame. Then I gave him some money to buy some food...

    Great scene. Nice sun rays, the sky and the waves, all composed beautifully. With the addition of Donovan in it, it's got that extra spice! You're a good man, Joe.

    I like especially the waves, the lighting on them and the angle of the shot. Also a reminder of people not as well off as us, I think that everyone on this site must at least own a camera and a computer which implies a more stable existence than Donovan.

      Thank you very much, Howard. You are right we are all quite fortunate to be able to have this hobby. As sympathetic as I can be, when I talked with Donovan I know and he knows he's made wrong choices. At least he's young and still has a very good chance of turning things around.

      Thank you very much, Michael and thank you so much for sharing! He seemed unlike the "typical" homeless and really seemed out of place.

        Always a pity to see young people who a forced to live that way. Hope he will find a way out soon ...

    Wow this is incredible. So good of you to help the homeless and make them feel important. The shadow reminds me so much of Dustin. The rays are breathtaking. Shared!

      Thank you very much CarolDM. Thank you for sharing! I do not know your Dustin, and only glimpse of your loss. Donovan is a young man and he's a gentle soul...hopefully only temporarily adrift.

        Dustin was my son, my only child. 16 when I lost him. I still see him as a young boy in my mind.

    Excellent shot as the Donovan looks out in wonderment at the beauty of the sunrise. He looks young to be homeless. Shared
