It was cloudy, and pretty cold this day. A friend and I were wandering around downtown Dallas shooting around and after dusk. A homeless man had just asked us for change moments before I saw this tree and building. As I made the 4 shots required for this panoramic view, the homeless man approached us again. You can see his shadow in the very lower right corner, much fainter in this gum print. We had no cash so helped him out with a granola bar instead, and a smoke. He thanked us but he was baffled as to why I'd photograph the side of a building, although I'm sure if he were to see this print, he would see what I had envisioned.
