A telemarketer, Sepa hits the phones at 7 a.m., working out of Zephyr Cafe in the Richmond District. He uses his laptop and a cell phone headset to make over 100 cold calls each morning. Currently, he's trying to get companies to take a meeting with a software firm he's representing.
He gets paid via his PayPal account, and owns an iPod and a guitar. When he says he is going to take you out to see "my version of a shopping cart," he means a late model Chevy.
What he doesn't have is four walls and a roof. Instead, he's been living in a tent deep on the back trails of Golden Gate Park for three months.
"Absolutely, there are cases where people are working and simply are not earning enough to live in a high-cost area like San Francisco," he said. "If you are not on a subsidy, it is very, very difficult to get housing on your own."
"Look, I make between $2,000 and $3,000 a month. It costs between $1,600 and $1,800 for a motel (at $50-$60 a night for a cheap one in a suburb like Fremont). You can do that, but you're not saving anything to get out of this."

At first I was upset that this wasn't real because it is a great photo. But it doesn't mean it couldn't be and for that reason I feel it still has impact. Dam those pesky photoshop/ad people, we can never take trust media again...hang on...could we ever?:)
