Salvation Army bell ringer Cirenio Velasquez rings his bell and waits for donations outside Foley's at Valley View Mall.
These images will be important again for magazines next June (for their December issues). Many magazines typically run a story about charitable contributions in their December issues.
I like the top image as a stand-alone. The secondary image is a supporting image, it probably gets to the point of the story faster, but the first image is more graphic and shows the overall problem: less donations this year due to location.
Purchase prints from this event.
