along one block of Hastings street in the rain.

It's been raining a good bit lately. Walking down Hasitings street tonight I could watch the water run off the brim of my hat. I walked just along one block of the street. From Abbot to Carrol street. Along the north side where the homeless camp out in mass.

They were in doorways and squeezed together under awnings and signs. Most had already staked out their small claim to space to try and rest on the hard concrete sidewalks. Some ate what small amounts of food they could. Some talked and smoked. Some talked and smoked crack and weed. Aging prostitutes long past their prime tried to strut for their boyfriends.

75 people.

75 people in one block.

There was forty men and thirty five women sleeping out of doors in the rain on the street tonight. Here in Vancouver.

A sad reality that is becoming far to common in many major cities these days.
