The Lady Collector

The streets of Berlin are full of homeless men who wander from trash  bin to trash bin looking for discarded plastic bottles in order to cash in on the deposits. (And I have drawn a good number of them!)

But I've rarely encountered a woman bottle collector.

This woman allowed me to take her photo, but when I asked her some very simple questions she seemed completely perplexed - which is when I took a second photo and used it for this drawing.
