homeless, reflective, weathered and calm

I noticed this interesting man against a run down building wall as I was walking by towards a beach. He asked me for money and I replied I will give you some money, but could I snap few pics of you as you look very interesting and he replied enthusiastically yes. While I was immersed in capturing the best aspects of his facial features; he talked of his life story, pointing at his son, sleeping on just few metres away. As we finished, another young men came up & said hello. To my surprise, he was his second son! They walked off. I am glad I met them & I hope this image speaks for itself.
