“Sprawled” Photograph

My immediate reaction on seeing this man sprawled on the ground was trepidation that he might actually need my help but then the other elements of the scene quickly jumped into place. The flip-flops deliberately laid upside down to one side, the cup of melted leftover ice and the surprisingly precise bed of newspapers.

Trepidation then turned to assumption and relief that he could just be ignored as a Saturday afternoon drunk.

Only then did I remember that I had a camera.
