'Canalside West' by premasagar

Rochdale Canal, Ancoats, Manchester.

I was photographing the bridge when Mike asked me what I was doing. We went on to talk for about an hour with a conversation that really touched and affected me.

He wanted his story to be told. He said that the stories of the homeless are usually ignored and needed telling. He didn’t mind me taking photos. He just got on with what he was doing, and I did the same.

I gave him the address of my Flickr photostream and blog and said that I would tell his story there. He had never used the internet before, but I hope that one day he finds this and leaves a comment to say how he is doing.

See the photo set for the full story and more photos.
