I had asked Jay his thoughts about panhandlers during the second interview. He said he really dislikes them, especially the one who won't leave Ann Arbor/Saline Road by the highway entrance. He took a photo of that man.
Last week when it snowed, Jay came home from work to find all of the tents collapsed. I didn't tell him to date any of his captions, but I really liked how he did on this one. Makes it more real.
"Snow completely crushed my tent - I hate moving"
Remember in the last black/white series he took a picture of his two tents and wrote "My stately home and storage tent"? Well check out the storage tent now.
How does he still manage to have a sense of humor throughout all of this?
One of my favorites: Jay told me that one of the homeless members found a small tree in the woods and replanted it in the center of the tent community. The tent community bought garland at Meijers and made pinecone ornaments. Jay took a picture of it.
On one hand I find this tree really sweet and nice, but at the same time I find it unbelievably sad.
