Seth – BW$P

Seth by Justin Korn

Meet Seth.

On my way home, Seth was sitting on the sidewalk asking for change from anyone who walked by.  Still 2-3 paces away from Seth, he half heartedly asked, “Spare any change?”  I slowed down and offered him $1 for his portrait.  Without changing his facial expression, he quickly agreed.

After taking Seth’s picture and giving him a dollar, I attempted to ask him a few questions, but he wasn’t very talkative.  I found out that Seth has been in San Francisco for 5 years.  I pushed further asking Seth where he was before San Francisco.  He told me he was in L.A. for 2 years and prior to that in Eugene, Oregon.  I was impressed and ask if he had plans to go elsewhere.  Seth simply responded, “I’ve been thinking about going to San Deigo.  I’m not liking the cold here anymore.”

I wished him luck with his future travels, he thanked me and I headed on my way.
