Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient


I walk under this underpass regularly, and recently it seems to have become someone’s temporary home – how sad to be in such a desperate situation that you have no option but to resort to sleeping on the streets. Hopefully this will prove to be a transient rather than a permanant situation for the poor unfortuate person concerned…

    Human beings living like raccoons. It’s everywhere, Ruth. We just received city planning notice that there’s a “trailhead” to be pave just a few feet from our property ending in a shelted bus stop, benches area impinging not only on the river and wetlands, but taking away the homeless hideaways. Daughter and I both had to wonder if that was the whole point of this absurd proposed creation on the lawn of a 90,000 gal. propane tank..

    Sorry about the typos — and I guess you can’t actually see what I’m talking about, lol — many homeless men and women live down the hill alongside the river and its ever-thinning woods. The rest of the *trail* runs through town, including busy streets to cross. Marvelous planning, and if it culminates at a propane tank, well, it’s hard to not think it wasn’t done mainly to roust the homeless all along the trail. I will pray for your homeless person. Sad.

    Good to see clean, dry bedding, and water too. Try dropping off a fully wrapped snack on your travels past.

    I too noticed how clean the bedding was, and the bottled water. In NYC where there are many homeless the bedding grimy and so are the parts of the people not covered, feet, hands, heads, faces. Dropping off the wrapped food sounds wise and kind. Best when the person is not in evidence. I’ve offered food to a homeless woman who screamed at me and batted it away as if I’d offered her piece of excrement.
