    Homeless

    Now I know some will not like me after this but it just go to me .
    I know there are reasons to why people are homeless and yes I know I don't know their story to why.
    But to me sitting and laying down just is so much of a lack of character.

    As we were in Sydney to head off on our cruise we had time to have a look about.
    And we came across the fell 1st, he had the side of an old box and he had written on it.
    Need $35 for a room tonight, but as we looked at him he was smoking.
    So you can't find money for a room but you can buy smokes.
    So I told him that if he gave up smoking he would get a room far quicker.

    Now to the lady. As people walked past she started to get abusive towards them.
    But saying you just walked through my dining room and stupid stuff like that.
    I looked down and her and told her to shut the hell up and kept on walking.

    Yes they came have real reasons to be there. But you place yourself in a very bust area in Sydney Harbour.
    Then you deserve to get what I said and I will say a lot of others would have said thing to them.
    So I have no pity for them in any fashion, and I think they should be moved on as they are in the way.

    The woman does look like she's putting on a bit of a show. Usually these people have drug or mental health problems. They are all over the city of Cali, Colombia where I live. I like the second one the best. I would consider cropping out the people on the left for a cleaner image.

    Pitter the shots were not taken to used for anything other than to show what I saw.
    But yes you are totally right on your point but this shots will just stay in my folder of photos.
    And they might never see the light of day again.
    Thanks for your reply.

    I honestly don't think I could ever do that but then again I don't want it to happen to me either.
    Its not a good look I think.

    Here in Australian we have got a really good welfare system.
    So these ones pleading are just too lazy to work a little.
    So for here I have very little pity for them and yes there are some real cases which I would never say the same thing about them.
    But he ones I posted are total waste of space.
