Psjunkie, No. That's not me. This guy seems to live on the porch of this building. He disappeared for a while, but seems to be back as of late. Thanks for looking.

I'm glad it's not you, Bob. I am quite sure that this would not be your best side anyway. :|

I hate images like this for one very simple and selfish reason... it compels me to want to know the story. Who is he and why is he sleeping there? Unfortunately the image doesn't answer that so the mind starts to go off in various directions to try to complete the story.

Damn, I'm getting a headache. Damn you for making me think so hard. I gotta get an aspirin. :lol:

My apologies on this one, Duck. When I initially observed the guy sleeping, actually a small campsite set up, in this location, I notified the police. They checked him out and left him to camp there. As I mentioned earlier, he disappeared for a while, but seems to be back. The occupancy of the building has changed. It doesn't seem occupied at present. This was take a while back, but he is a current fixture there again. For all I know, he knows the people that own the property.
