This photograph was taken in Toryglen, Glasgow, by 18-year-old Sarah McIntyre, who has been homeless for more than a year.

It is part of a project called Waiting, run by the young people's charity Fairbridge and PhotoVoice, a charity that provides photography training to people in disadvantaged communities.

Eleven homeless people, aged from 18 to 24, were given the training and asked to take pictures reflecting their experiences.

The photographs are on display at an exhibition that is touring Scotland until August.
