Foot Traffic

  • Post-race thoughts on Fort4Fitness
    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

University of Saint Francis senior Jessie Strable stands under a tree for some protection from the rain during shanty town Wednesday. Students, faculty and staff constructed and occupied cardboard ÒshantiesÓ from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. as a visual representation of the struggles of homelessness and a location to drop off canned food and gentley used coats.

Shooter's Comments: I photographed some really dedicated University of Saint Francis students willing to stay out in the rain and cold all day to help collect food and warm clothing for those in need. Their only shelter was cardboard boxes to show what it is like for the homeless. Jessie Strable put her shack under a tree for extra protection.

I choose to take her photo with a wide angle view to show the other shacks.
