Careful: Soul Inside- A Homelessness Tale (King James)

So yesterday was my day off and I was at the park to take pictures of squirrels. I sat there for hours, but, god knows why, I didn't see a single one. James is a homeless guy who lives on the neighborhood, and I always see him around. Different than most of the others he doesn't drink, smoke, or ask for money, and is often reading magazines or newspapers, that he carries around.Today he seated next to me, looked at the camera and asked if I " take pictures":I said yes and we talked for a bit about it, and after a while I asked if he would mind me taking a picture of him. Very shy, by first he didn't agree, but after I asked him to take one of myself he was so excited that allowed me to take this portrait of him. What a great experience I had today!
