Homelessness powerfully displayed. Recently, while my daughter and I were driving through downtown Seattle, the rush hour traffic had us held captive at a light for a few minutes. While sitting there I was shooting pictures of buildings and neon signs when my eye rested upon an elderly, homeless woman standing back against a building holding a sign, not really watching the passersby at all. I normally do not ’shoot’ people, but I shot several images of her, one was totally blurry, one was ho-hum, but one was powerfully emotional and evocative. The slow shutter speed blurred the passersby, but she remained in sharp focus which describes visually what was happening to her physically. After photographing her, I was able to discover her first name, Diane and photographed her a second time on First Avenue.
