Chad

Project: BW$P | More from the project Meet Chad. Chad was standing in the middle of the sidewalk, barefooted with a cup filled with spare change, a dollar and a cigarette. As I approached Chad, he only kept staring at me, not saying anything.  I approached him slowly and said, “Hey, how are you doing?”  He […]

David – BW$P

Meet David. Along with all of the other performers along Jefferson St. at the Fisherman’s Wharf, David sat. He was not harassing anyone for change, nor even actually physically asking, just getting ready to light a cigarette and holding his “Need $$$ 4-Weed” sign. I approached him and explained the project I was working on […]

George – BW$P

It has been awhile since I’ve taken at portrait for this project due to two things: 1) I have been slacking on having my camera with me all the time (not something I like to admit) and 2) I keep finding myself without small bills available. Well, over the past several weeks, I have seen […]

Take Me For Who I Am

Description:  I processed another capture of Deon using the same post-processing technique as Free I Roam.  I am very pleased with the end results and have officially started my 2010 Favorites Set on Flickr.  I hope you enjoy watching this set grow as the year goes on. Since Deon confessed he was trying to quit […]

Brady – BW$P

Meet Brady. As I headed from work to the Metreon to catch AVATAR, Brady was sitting on the sidewalk along 4th Ave. kindly asking for change.  I approached him and explained my BW$P project.  Brady agreed without hesitation and not once asked for more.  I asked him what his name was and how he was […]

Free I Roam

Description:  After fiddling with the post processing of Bent for a little bit, I settled on this alternate crop and processing.  Personally, I think I like this outtake more than the original black and white outtake, but, at this time, the BW$P project is specifically for black and white portraits. Location: San Francisco, CaliforniaDate Taken: […]

Bent – BW$P

Meet Bent. I was heading back to the parking lot with a friend from the downtown area when I bumped into Bent asking for money to help him out.  I stopped and explained my BW&P Project to him and he quickly agreed.  As I took out my camera, he tried haggling for $2.  I kindly […]

Dorothy – BW$P

Meet Dorothy. As I headed to the bus stop from work today, I bumped into Dorothy on the corner of Pine and Montgomery asking for change.  I approached her and explained my BW$P Project.  She didn’t agree right away, but rather stated, “I’ve been sitting on this corner since 6am this morning and all I’ve […]

Pete – BW$P

Meet Pete. As I walked home from the Papyrus Store, I came across Pete sitting in a wheelchair asking very quietly for change.  He asked so quietly, I wasn’t even sure he was asking for change and had to ask him what he said.  He repeated, “Got any change?”  I told him about my project […]

Houston St. with my friends toward the deli, Carol was enthusiastically asking people for change.  When I approached her and explained my project, she happily agreed. I asked my typical, “How long have you been […]
