Looking for Answers in Yorkville

Took a short walk the other day. I needed some new white socks. I also was looking for some answers. The world is so warped right now or so it seems. Trumpism pervails. Anthony Bourdain takes his life. So many questions. So few answers. I took my camera with me and tried to find a few answers. I’m not sure I found any. Just little tidbits: others out wandering, close ups of randomness.

And then the last shot in this series which is the type of photo I dislike. I don’t like shooting this type of shot. I don’t like seeing this type of shot (exploitive, gratuitous, unoriginal, invasive). But I took this one and am posting it. Mostly because of the contrast. The passed out man, seemingly down and out, up against the tony Kate Spade store… Kate Spade who ended her life while seemingly having it all contrasted with this man who keeps on going despite the appearance of having very little…

Did this provide answers, NO. Actually created more questions, but at least for the time I spent walking with my camera I was able to see things a little more clearly.
