Photographer's Note

San Francisco is an amazing city, but there's a huge problem that has loomed over several city administrations-HOMELESSNESS. There are many people without a place to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Politicians talk, clerics pray, police arrest them, but the one true fact remains, people are sleeping on the streets, or in abandoned buildings such as this one. This is a buliding on the Port of San Francisco area on the shore, left over from the industrial era of the city . Holes have been cut in the fence for people to go in and out. On the side walk you can see makeshift living quarters amongst the garbage. If you look closely there's a man rummaging through the garbage.
This happens in San Francisco, California, why, no one seems to know, but the fact remains tonight there are people sleeping here or worst, on the street.
I know the quality is off, not sure why I cropped a bit on the left, and right, and had to resize it considerably.
