The evening commuter rush at Union Station in Washington, DC.
A storm moves in. Panhandlers Michael Allen (l) and Rod Amis take shelter beside the fountain at Columbus Circle.
Amis has been living at Columbus Circle for ten months. He sleeps under a tarp at night on the fountain bench. The money he collects in his cup mostly pays for cigarettes and alcohol. Charity groups bring him food each day.
A former writer, Amis calls himself a racounter and savant. He says he ended up homeless after suffering from a brain disorder that affects his memory.
The end of a busy day for the taxi wrangler at Union Station.
