Woman on Skid Row

I was driving through Skid Row with my friend Jamal. It was an entirely different world… one that I have been used to seeing on my TV screen but feeling with only a fraction of emotion. We turned the corner and my heart sank when I saw her limping slowly at the end of the block.


Bestow My wealth upon My poor, that in heaven thou mayest draw from stores of unfading splendor and treasures of imperishable glory.

-Baha’u’llah, Persian Hidden Words #57

Bobby’s love for the visual medium was fostered at an early age in Iran after watching his first episode of “The Six Million Dollar Man” on television. Enamored with his TV set, Bobby explored his love for the arts by trying his hand in every medium: from music production to stand up comedy, until he found contentment through the lens of a camera. He and his wife Fiona work together at Fiona + Bobby Photography.

    This composition is very good. The quote you chose is really appropriate as well. Good work!
