As I walked down the streets of Downtown Los Angele, I was saddened to find skid row in the state is was in. I looked at my surroundings and became disappointed in myself for being afraid of my own community. As I walked further down the street carrying my camera around my neck and some la Witness gear, I heard a voice behind me yell " oh goodies!" I became startled and this man walks up to me and noticed my camera. He puts his carton of ice cream on the ground and said "can I be your model?!" With such excitement. I said yes and told him to wear this nice new la Witness shirt. This man was so happy as I began to take multiple pictures of him. After the shoot he walked away thanking me and yelling out thank you ! As local member of this community I want to fix this unjust problem that everyone keeps ignoring.
