commute

I took this photo on the way to work one morning. Quite in contrast to the last entry, this photo isn’t a demonstration of the hope and opportunity that we claim to afford. 

I can only speculate the circumstances that left these two here, exhausted on a bus stop bench downtown in front of a pawn shop on a Wednesday morning. There’s a palliative relief in the sadness. A melancholy reminder to expand one’s perspective. 

I hope they found some rest.
