A man sleeping on a stone bench outside the Central Reference Library in Manchester.

Hi everyone, I'm Jane, guest blogger for today. Many thanks to Ian for asking me to contribute to this week of guest posts and I hope that the vacation is going well!

You can find me over at ephemera.

Pictures of homeless people are always sad. The b&w is well matched to the subject. Nice capture !

Hello Jane. I'm always amazed that people can sleep on such hard surfaces and in open spaces. The man almost seems to blend into the concrete. I always try to find out their story - some are glad to talk about their situation, many tell me to go f--k myself.

Excellent capture. I like the processing on this one with the soft edges on the back wall. It gives it a dreamy feeling, which goes well with your napper :)

Looks like a painting - especially the head portions - kinda merges into the concrete as Rock said.

Looks like a weary traveller in a deep slumber...

Jane, Thank you for agreeing to post here.

This is a great shot - thought provoking. It works supremely well in B&W - this soft vulnerable individual against his har unyeilding surroundings.

A powerful photo Jane! And as Rock says, he seems part of the scenery. I surely will visit your blog!
