This is a continuation from Minnie's thread New Orleans #1 of the two at Jackson Square. Feel free to post more, (if you have the desire) Minnie.

While observing these two and others in the morning hours, I came to the conclusion that they all seem to watch out for one another, which is a sense of relief to some degree. I find all parts of street photography interesting, regardless of characters. All are a mystery to me. Posted is just one mystery of observation.

Wonderful work, Dave. It's good they have someone looking out for them. Sad when folks are forgotten and abandoned. Matt

Powerful series Dave. One cannot look without feeling some pain for them, but at the same time realizing that they are supporting each other. In the Quarter, there is a strange, strong alliance between the homeless, the down and out, the street musicians and the artists. Sometimes the lines between categories are blurred. But there is an arrangement of some sort where they support and protect each other.

Thanks Matt !!! Seems that it may be a tight niche community ... especially for the homeless. I have not seen it as tight elsewhere.

I was talking to someone one and he said the worst part of being homeless is having everyone look the other way like they aren't even there. People walk past, over, and around, them trying to ignore them sometimes just on the edge themselves. It wasn't that he was mad, he just wanted to exist in the eyes of those around him so it's amazing the people of NOLA look out for one another! S-
