13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
I was immediately drawn to this gentleman sitting on a crate in the middle of Times Square. I was curious about him, as my eyes followed the hundreds of rusty old safety pins adorning his torn pants, down to his colorful mismatched socks and strategically designed sneakers that showcase his weathered toes. Obviously having a difficult life, this hobos he calls himself, created an everlasting impression on me his use of colors and design that distinctively embellished him. He was so proud when asked to photograph his works of art.
