The one I gave away

This is just an iPhone shot of the polaroid neg, but you can easily see why I think this was the best shot of the day. This guy was scavenging stuff from nearby trashcans and managed to score a DVD player (it’s in the red plastic bag) that had been thrown away. He watched with […]
