For me, this photo expressed the natural essence of the life that the homeless in Bogota, Colombia have. The writing on his jacket (Jesus Saves) is what first impacted me. We normally think and see Jesus in a very attractive way and an attractive life, however this man reflects Jesus also: Jesus in search of something, perhaps love. We just need to slow down and pay attention.
