No kids, they are not camping.......

On a recent trip to Portland looking for a photo op. Not what I was looking for but a sad statement of how tough things are. People camping out in tents under the Hawthorne Bridge. I saw many others without tents, in sleeping bags or just covered with coats, all over this area. Never been like this before......

Stoped by to see your work and as always I am impressed. As for the photo, I sometimes feel the media made a mountain out of a mole hill and we the people believed it and quit spending and producing. I feel for those who have lost.

This is an amazing picture, perry. It gives a hard-hitting true message that isn't just felt in america, but all around the world. The title is very enticing and the picture is stunning.

Boy did those people burn their bridges, so to speak. It takes a lot of bad choices to end up living like that.....

That's what the Hartley's told our girls "we're just camping"

Losers making bad choices day after day, year after year = hurting life after life......
