It’s a hard reality to walk the streets and see unfortunate people begging for change.
Particularly in a cashless society.
I try to collect all of my change throughout the week from various rate cash purchases so I have something to give. Though I must admit guiltily that I gravitate towards those who are, I guess, working for their earnings.
I’ll always donate a few dollars and then ask to capture an image. If the answer is no, I wish them the best and move on. Or, as it was in this case, when given permission, I capture a frame and thank them before moving on.
