Braving the cold on Miami's streets
Winter finally arrived in Miami Wednesday night with temperatures dropping to the low 40s. And while it may seem mild to those of you who live up north, it was a drop of more than 20 degrees in a two-day span so it’s like a sudden jolt of cold water in a hot shower for us.
And nobody feels it worse than the homeless. So last night I grabbed a few sweaters I had stored in a box that I had not worn since living out west where you have four months of winter instead of four days.
Then I hit the streets looking for homeless people. Most I saw were already bundled up in blankets under bridges and expressways but I found a couple of guys shivering in t-shirts.
I gave them the sweaters and snapped their photos.
I’m also experimenting with a new photo plugin which enables you to see the photos and cutlines by clicking on the navigational arrows. Let me know what you think.
