About a month ago, my friend Patty and I took a Saturday afternoon to go out for lunch in Five Points South and then we walked around the area looking for photos. We walked up on a small group of men and Patty and I started chatting and she asked, "What are ya'll doing here?". One answered, "We're hobos Ma'am." I'll be honest, I haven't heard that term used since I was in elementary school, and we dressed as hobos for Halloween when we didn't have a costume. One played his guitar, another cuddle his dog, another made bracelets and rings from twine, while we took their photographs. No one asked us for money. Apparently they move from city to city and it's a way of life that they have chosen. It's not for me to judge their lifestyle. I wish them well. Today is the first of a short series of photographs from that day.
