On Granville Street, Vancouver Canada
There seems to be quite an ongoing problem there, atleast from my point of view coming from Australia..
I came across so many wanting money you begin to get picky about who you give your money to..
In Seattle the week before I came across a man in the middle of the road asking for a place to stay or whatever anyone could offer for himself and his stranded wife all I had was a couple of spare coins and my leftover lunch which I gave him and he accepted graciously..
In my hometown, of Perth, Australia a bum or a beggar is an extremely rare occurance - I guess with our welfare system there shouldn't be any...
It was a shock to me in any case, and this is just one of the few cases and as you can tell these two aren't the hardest done by of all.. Oh well I contributed to their liquor fund in exchange for taking the photo
