Bogota Daysleeper II

Even in the middle of the day, a person doesn’t have to sleep alone on the street in Bogota.

I selected this image for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge, whose theme is ‘Connected‘. As desperate as the scene appears, there’s a certain comfort in the connection between this man sleeping on a busy street at noon and the mural just behind him. No matter the circumstances that landed him there, the man deserved that sense of comfort, even if fleeting.

For the record: today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 609th straight, was snapped on 14 August 2015 in Bogota, Colombia.
