starting over for Steve

by Trish April. 23, 2012 2434 views

I decided to do some portrait shots…and hand out mandarin oranges to the less fortunate on Saturday morning…
I got brave and asked this man carrying all this stuff through the park, if I could take his photo.
He said yes. I asked if all he was carrying was ALL he had for possessions. Sadly, he said yes…he was 24 hours out of detox.
I told him I thought that was glorious….how many people get a FRESH start to match spring! :)
He smiled and posed so sweetly for me.

My heart has thought of him every night…I hope he makes the right decisions to keep him on the right path. We rarely get second chances in life…but when we do…it's what we make of it that counts.
“Good luck this 'round Steve”

I hope Steve makes it! And I love your taking portraits. I thought about doing that sort of thing too as I ran across a photographer's blog where she set out to take 1000 portraits! I don't have it in me to ask strangers if I can take their photo, but maybe I should try it. No risk, no return!

I just can't imagine how hard that must be! Nice portraits! Hope he does well and finds a safe spot to spend his life!

Beautiful post Trish. I hope the best for Steve. It would be so hard starting over with nothing. No home, few possessions. I've actually done it. Not because of drugs, alcohol or legal problems. Long story. I can just tell you it is hard not to give up.
