I met him in the forest

I had seen him on many occasions when walking or cycling through through forest, always sitting with his little dog and his beer. One day I stopped and got talking to him. He told me about a hard life of alcoholism, drugs and homelessness. We talked about mutual respect and love of animals. I saw him again shortly afterwards. He was sitting on the pavement outside the local boozer being helped unsuccessfully by a couple of people to get up. I have not seen him since. For best viewing click on image to enlarge.

    Hello, I just spent quite some time looking at your photos.
    They are just wonderful and storytelling.
    I would also love to take pictures of people and faces, but
    always hesitate to do so. Do you always ask them if you
    can publish it?
    I’ll keep watching you, so I can learn from you 🙂

    Have a fine weekend

      Hi Knipsa
      I am pleased that you like my images. No I do not ask permission to publish. That would be an almost impossible task and not legally neccessary.
      You may also like to have a look at my homepage with other types of images.
