Bottom of Hope – A homeless man sits at a thermal vent on a cold night.

As I was heading home, I drove thru a super scary tunnel my cousin told me about. It was neither super nor scary. At the end of it, I saw a homeless man sitting against a steam port. I asked him if I could shoot a photo. He said, yes. The steam was always blowing up and away from him, but every once in awhile the steam would blow against his head. He’d get wet and have to sit there like that in the cold. But the vent was too warm to leave. He refused everything I offered him, and his only request to me was that I had a good holiday. — at 3rd and Flower. Downtown LA.
