Tennesse Ave.

The image is meant to depict the beauty of hardwork. While visiting a few work sites in St. Louis MO I ran into this interesting character who introduced me to the world of construction workers and what it's like to live in a low-income area in Missouri. In this photograph, he is digging a hole in the basement of a house in order to access a rotten pipe.
