Standing in line

Standing in line, originally uploaded by fracturedacetabulum.

This is such a great shot I have to share it with the world. Fracturedacetabulum has been dabbling with shoe shooting. He's created a masterpiece with this one taken at the FDR Memorial in D.C. To those who've not visited the memorial, there is an "ode to welfare" with bronze sculptures of very powerfully carved down and out people of the depression standing in the dole line.

Frac poignantly captioned his photo with lyrics from Bruce Hornsby's "The Way it Is"

Standing in line marking time--
Waiting for the welfare dime
'cause they can't buy a job
The man in the silk suit hurries by
As he catches the poor old ladies' eyes
Just for fun he says "get a job"
