Let me share with you a story. Today I decided to head up to the Red Caboose for a little coffee fix. Lately I've been trying to keep my eyes peeled for interesting characters. I was in luck. As I pulled in I practically ran over this older woman who was bending over picking up trash. Okay, not really, but I was in a car and she was picking up garbage.
As I exited my car she told me sternly, "Don't litter!" She then proceeded to beacon me to help her. I couldn't tell if she was asking for help in the moment or just in general. Apparently she picks up trash every day for four miles. I offered to buy her a coffee or yogurt but she was not interested. All she wanted from me was to not litter.
I went inside a bit discontent because I neither had an interesting conversation with her, nor did I get a chance to take her picture.
I then mustered up the guts to go out again and ask to grab a quick shot of her.
When I asked she replied with, "I don't care, just don't litter."
She was interesting... and now I have a picture of her.

First, I apologize for the horribly blurry picture. Second, let me share with you a story.
Abby and I were in Missoula this weekend. We were getting ready to head on to a high way when we saw a homeless man whose sign said, "Need a miracle". Well, I needed a person to photograph and he looked like he would make a great candidate. Unfortunately, we were in a car headed down an turn only lane. I took a picture of sunglasses instead.
Abby managed to turn the car around and we headed to the gas station across the street from our miracle needy friend. As we grabbed a parking spot he was already headed over... but not to us. Instead he was getting a citation for begging on the street. I guess that's not legal. Unfortunately I didn't get to take his picture, but I did get this one blurry shot of the poor guy. He needed a miracle and he got a ticket.
