15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
There is a mentally ill man who frequents this particular bus stop, in downtown San Diego. The day I shot this, it was raining. The man was always clothing himself in garbage bags, and when I saw him, he sat there inert, completely covered. The advertisement was for help with prescription drug addiction, and depicted the ominous shadow of a person trapped inside a prescription pill bottle. The hands behind this man, hidden in his garbage bag, caught my eye while driving.
