Christmas, Santa Monica Promenade
We went up to Santa Monica to shop for a few things and to see a movie. While walking on the Promenade, I came across this woman, who I am guessing was homeless. It was nice that the police were not bothering her. The temperature was about 65 degrees, so she was probably not really cold. But still, my heart goes out when I see someone like this. It is especially poignant at this time of year, and is only highlighted by the festive lights in the trees. So I took this photo, and was feeling badly for the woman. I only had $5 in my pocket, so I walked over to her, and found she was asleep. So I put the money in an empty boot that was hanging on the chair next to her, and continued on. It didn't feel like enough money for the photograph I took.
