Young Woman In Seattle

Susan Nolen's Photograph of a homeless woman in Seattle


I missed uploading my black and white photograph  entry for the week. But here is this week’s black and white photograph. A portrait of a young woman, ( perhaps twenty years old)  homeless in  downtown Seattle, trying to keep warm on an early March Morning.  Black and White- Portrait of a Young Woman

About susan sheldon nolen

It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Great photo, but heartbreaking, too.

    • Thanks Carrie, I was shocked when I crossed the street. At first I thought someone had just bundled rags into the wheelchair, but when I got closer, I saw it was a woman. A young girl, maybe twenty, but not much older. It looks like my journey into street photography is going to show both sides of life. This one really got to me.

    that is one heartbreaking image.

    • Morgan I don’t know what’s happening in Seattle . There are tent cities and homeless everywhere. It feels like we’ve gone back in time to the poverty of the Great Depression.

    Are there no shelters that can help her?

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
