Everyone Needs A Gimmick

Lying Down On The Job
It's 'dog eat dog' in the panhandling business in Vancouver.
This guy's shtick is lying in the sidewalk (with blue hair).
This was months ago, he might have taken his show on the road by now.

Too bad someone can't give him a job because he looks pretty inventive Doesn't see to be gathering too much attention, tho.

It may not be such a crazy idea, considering how many people walk looking downwards.

He seems to be making an "existential" point about awareness and how preoccupied we are and how automatic we have become that we don't notice... At least two people in the shot are *texting*! arggghhh.
I wonder what his sign says. Your photo is really quite profound!

Hope he has found his way into a job by now.

Thought perhaps his sign said, "I've fallen and can't get up!" Urbanites know how to walk around these folk without intruding on their space. Interesting street photography.

Wayne, it looks like you are the only one paying attention. It paid off because you got an excellent street photography shot.
