Before we continue you have to read THIS
The DTES is the poorest Zip Code in Canada. Life is challenging in this part of town and it is a way for the residents to make a few dollars to supplement their Welfare money. Many Vendors are former drug addicts trying to make money, the honest way. More info Here while others turn to vending to make ends meet, info here2 . It is not easy to flash your camera down here as I get stares from some of the people who would rather blend in with the crowd. There is the smell of drugs in the air and I am sure you could find what you are looking for, if you wanted some. As I walk about I feel eyes following me as I walk so I try to keep my camera low and snap "from the hip"
It is part of my series of showing you around my Town, where I live on the Wet Coast of Canada. Many of these people are hard working honest people, some are not necessarily . . . beyond this I enter no comments
This is not an area that I would like to find myself after dark
