'Down and Out in San Francisco'
                    by Judy Jones  




Text rewritten below pictures 


As a painter living in San Francisco it's hard
not to notice ever increasing numbers of
homeless people at every turn.  When
I first moved here, seeing people eating
out of garbage cans and dying on the cold
streets made me sit down and weep.

I watched as people walked by, pretending
not to see their brother and sister in each
soul crying out for help.

I prayed with all my heart to never, ever
accept fellow human beings eating out of
garbage cans and dying because of neglect. 
I only ask to be guided through to open hearts
by sharing what I see.

I bought a camera to take photographs of
the homeless I see. One day as I was sitting
in front of a store, eating, a homeless person
across the streets had tears in his eyes.  It so
overwhelmed me I left my camera on the bench
and never bought another.

Proceeds from The Big Issue go towards helping
the homeless.
