Earlier this week I captured these images with my cell phone.
I never get accustomed to seeing places like this. The fact is this is "home" to several of my fellow citizens of Dallas, Texas.
As I was thinking about the harsh reality of living outside through the brutal Dallas summer, something else caught my eye. I attempted to capture what I saw in the second frame, but the distance and the limitations of my camera prevented as clear a view as I hoped for.
Bread crusts willingly shared by the inhabitants of the campground.
If the first image causes me to worry about the condition of these neighbors who'd scattered into the hot Dallas day, the second reminded me that they and I share the very same precious humanity.
Men and birds.
Not an image that I'll soon, if ever, forget.
