Post-Processing: Layes, blur.       Extra Info: One of many living on the street, homeless and begging for change, two days before Christmas, in the heart of the financial district, in the midst of last minute Christmas shoppers, in front of a City Hall decorated with seasonal lighting, Toronto.

    Thank you for all your votes and comments.

Billy, I tried something new here; not blur so much as camera shake; this is a two image composite of the same scene, once with shake and once without. The in focus part is without the shake, both shot on a tripod to preserve angle and perspective.

    Nice PP job with the blur here, helps very well to isolate the subject from the background, adding even more loneliness feeling. Not directly connected with "sleep", but yes with "sleepless", as he's still trying to get some help while many are confortably sleeping at home... along with your nice, crude caption, so qualifies for me, and it's in my TT.
(And, theme apart, I like a lot the pic, well done!)

    Edward48 I'm flattered by your vote and appreciate your comment. I was unsure whether the connection to sleep would be accepted.

elliott Thank you for your comment and I anticipate your views will be shared by the majority. I did want to get to the heart of the practical reality of homelessness which is summarized in the question posed by the title, and the question which is brought to my mind when I see individuals like the person in this image, begging for change late in the evening.

    The only connection with sleep is in the title, but this is still my top shot. It tells a powerful story.

    although i like this as a 'street' shot, it doesn't connect to the theme like your shot in the main (i'm assuming it is yours also). but good luck and happy new year. el
