The World Passes By….

I shot this while visiting Seattle.  This gentleman stands in front of The Cheesecake Factory,  and is there every time we visit.

We had a wait to get in for dinner, and I watched as what seemed like a thousand people walked by this gentleman and didn’t even acknowledge his existence.  It was like there were two realities happening at the same time right in front of me.  Very sad.

My daughter wanted to give him something after we left, and hopes he enjoyed the spaghetti we gave him.  She’s young, but has a good heart.

Camera Speak:  Shot with the Fuji x100s, which I keep in aperture priority mode / auto shutter speed / auto ISO when I am street shooting.  In post I applied a bit of a 4 corner burn to draw the viewer’s attention to the gentleman in the centre of the image.
