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"

Funniest thing about this shot: It's a milestone photo. A first.

When I took it, in a small park, there was a homeless guy with his trolley of crap about 30 feet away. He was feeding pigeons and was covered in filth and pigeon stuff, unshaven, wild hair and eyes and yet he had the audacity to yell at me: "ARRRGH, YOU *@!% FREAK! GET OUT OF HERE AND TAKE YOUR #@*! CAMERA WITH YOU! FREAK!!!" and he then started screaming. Just screaming "arrrghhh! Aeeeeeargh! Freak! Freak! Freak!"

I get a lot of looks and stares and sometimes some questions when I shoot my feet (I almost always use the self timer) and I'm sure most people think I'm a freak, but this is the first time anyone's actually said, "YOU FREAK!" Oh the irony that the first time was from a scary homeless pigeon feeding freak.
