This is Charlie. Every night for the last 8yrs, Charlie has sat outside of this local ice cream shop, located in Downtown Santa Ana, and waited until it closes to walk the owner, Martha, safely to her car. "Martha is a good friend of mine and this isn't always a safe place at night. Throughout the day I help her take out the trash and clean up a few things and then I wait until she closes the store. I'm sad though because this Sunday is her last day and I won't see her anymore. I don't know how she feels but I'm sad about it." -Charlie
I met Charlie a few weeks ago and he's always been there. And always smiling. I think what he does for Martha is great and more people should know about it.

A good friend asked me why my brother and I do what we do for the homeless. And aside from the satisfaction we get from knowing we gave someone food, it's the bond we build with every single homeless person we meet. It's not just buy a meal and walk away; it's hearing them out and learning about their lives. You can tell when the stories they're saying are stories they haven't told in a long time and stories they don't say to just anyone. Feeding the homeless community of Santa Ana is getting to know them and showing them that someone cares. And even if you guys don't have money or time to stop and buy them a meal, I encourage you to simply say hello and smile, that can go a long way. A homeless person is simply a person without a home. The photos I shoot of them are never forced and they always come after we spend time with them. The photos are simply to keep Solace going. But seeing them pose and smile at my lens, knowing we brought them happiness and friendship is the best feeling, ever. Thank you guys for the continued support of Solace zines. Can't believe how quickly and how many Solace zines people are picking up. The homeless community and ourselves thank you! Ps donations of clothes are greatly appreciated. Spread the word.

"I used to be an actor. Acting was something I really loved. When I was 12yrs old I played the role of the Genie in the Genie in the Lamp play at my school. Too bad I didn't stick to acting. That was when I lived in Virginia, where I'm from. And now I'm 53yrs old sitting here in California. At least the weather is always nice. Don't quit whatever it is you love doing" -Joseph
I sat and talked with Joseph in this alley for about an hour. He mostly reminisced about his acting days and throughout it he acted out different emotions. Quite a show.
Thanks @taniasancon for helping feed Joseph. :)

I don't think many people acknowledge and appreciate all of the different & aesthetic trees we come across throughout our daily routine; for that reason, I chose to shoot an entire roll of black and white film of the trees that I come across daily. The rest of the photos are on my tumblr. I hope you enjoy them. 🌲🌴🍃🌳 yourfrienddavid.tumblr.com

"I got involved with the wrong people about a year ago. They were nothing but bad influences. I started drinking again and everything snowballed from there. Soon after, my wife and I got divorced. But I've been sober for months and I know that through God everything will be okay." -James
It's a humbling experience when you meet someone who has been through so much yet they see everything as "glass half full." Thanks guys @keex714 & @illegal06 for picking up Solace zines and helping the homeless community of Santa Ana. #zinesforthehomeless #beautifulhumans #santaana

"I used to live right across the street from here. I was the school crossing guard for years. I only made enough to afford sleeping on the house owner's couch. One day I lost my job and I've been on the street ever since. In reality, we are all one paycheck away from being homeless." -Angel
I never fail to meet up with Angel when I go to downtown Santa Ana to feed the homeless community. He has one of the most kind demeanors. And thanks to you guys I can always enjoy a meal with him.

Excited to finally announce that Solace Volume 5 is finally published and ready to go. The amount of what every zine is purchased for will be used to feed a homeless person. The photos of the persons fed will be published in the following Solace zine. Essentially; buy a zine, feed a homeless person. I can't thank you guys enough for all of the continued love and support to my previous volumes. I will have Volume 5 available on Etsy tonight. Link is in my bio. I will be vending my zines at the March Downtown Craft event hosted by @konseptproject. Check them out! Also, Volume 5 wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for my good friend @pddanny. Let's help the homeless community of Orange County. Thanks again guys.
