Street Queen

There is a homeless woman who lives on a park bench in Cadman Plaza. She is normally clothed in a long, black, down coat reinforced with black garbage bags.

One morning last week, Zoe and I were heading home from our morning walk, and, as we often do, passed by her bench. The image stopped me in my tracks and I had to share.

I had not seen her robed in this spectacular blanket before. Nor have I since.

Someone I showed this to, thought that I was wrong to have taken this picture. I couldn't NOT take it.
