Como Baths. This was taken the same day the man fell/ slipped or jumped from the Como train Bridge (not pictured) and badly hurt his face, head, and abdomen. I had left when the incident occurred but i have seen an image of the man, still in the water, awaiting for paramedics to remove him safely. He has people in the water holding him up, a rather disturbing sight….non the less, people will still climb and jump from that bridge. Some have become paraplegic, and being in the Georges there could be anything floating down stream, anyway lets hope we don’t see any fatalities here.

This is a portrait of Loci, who lives in the tents behind him. We enjoyed having a chat and, he says “he once had a home with four (brick) walls”. He is quite happy to live where he lives, and he enjoys the company of the others who live in the park. I myself wonder if he is putting on a front for our conversation, but he tells me, “this is his community”. He gave up his old home as it didn’t interest him. He isn’t on a pension and lives on the donations of passers by and what ever else he can do. He is blind in one eye so so limited by what he can do safely, and originally from o/s so I’m not sure of his eligibility for a pension.
