Here is a crop of the above shot, putting the focus more on the subject than the scene. With the 18 megapixel Canon I’m buying next week I’ll be able to make crops like this without worrying about ruining the image quality.
Although it was a rather nice day out when I took this photo, it was still winter and much too cold to be laying around without shoes. What I find really striking about this photo is how this scene is so prevalent in Toronto that the people around the shoeless homeless guy seem oblivious to his presence. Also, take note that he’s holding up a Tim Horton’s Coffee cup outside of a Starbucks. This would be a comical photo if it weren’t so sad. At least with an election coming up and our Mayor, David Miller, not running again, we have a chance to elect someone with some fiscal common sense, which could result in people not losing their jobs and homes due to over taxation.
