Eric Kim makes some good point about street photography and one is:

#66. Shooting photos of homeless people in an attempt to be “artsy” is exploitation.

I always try to be aware of that fine line when I'm out shooting folks on the streets, but at times it can be a very fine line.

This guy preaches on the streets every morning and is always at rest in the evening, kinda like he used all his energy saving the world earlier in the day, so I felt a bit more comfortable shooting him at this point. The fact that he had headphones on helped ease my mind also. If he had looked like he was really on the skids I probably would have passed on taking the shot.

Also, he will never ask for money but just hands out flyers and preaches to those passing by.
