On the way to our tour bus, I passed this homeless man sleeping.
I had hesitated taking the photograph because I felt like I was invading his privacy.
I snapped it with intention of showing the current conditions in Puerto Rico.
Homelessness was extremely prevalent years before the disastrous Hurricane Maria.
It’s extremely worse now.
On my way back to the cruise ship, I passed the same location in hopes that the man would be awake
and I could give him some money for a bite to eat. He was gone. This mattress was in his location.
Perhaps, that night, he would be having a better nights sleep.
I find the photos a poignant reminders how fragile life is each time I view them.
