Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26 – ‘Distance’

Drinking Alone by Tobe Damit

CM-Capture-3-1000x645
I saw this homeless guy who was drinking alone and when I got my camera out, felt he knew I was taking the picture and didn’t budge, I even felt he was enjoying it, even from that far away! I decided to just let him know that he wasn’t alone in my own way. In spite of the song called ”Drinking in L.A.” by Bran Van 3000 that makes drinking alone such a trendy thing, I titled this one ”Drinking Alone’‘. By doing so I brought this guy closer to me and the viewers, establishing a connection from far away and at the same time, establishing a connection with the reality of this homeless guy, drinking alone in a back alley, downtown Montreal.
