The third Monday of the month challenge from Lens and Pens by Sally is black and white. I was in downtown Orlando in January on another Monday holiday and took this photo in front of City Hall.

Yes, the same Council on Homelessness report that found a 17 percent drop statewide cited a 29 percent increase in Orange County.
And a 50 percent increase over the last five years.
