I first noticed this individual about a block away from 1st and Pike in downtown Seattle. He was talking to an older man in a wheelchair, but they departed by yelling "Fuck You" at one another. I meandered over to the Starbucks for a drink and when I came out I found this guy with a syringe in his mouth. He removed the cap, throwing it onto the ground and then began rubbing something vigorously into the palm of his right hand over the public drinking fountain. It almost seemed too surreal. Was he about to shoot up something illegal or inject medication? I crossed the street to get a different view, snapped photos while he continued to inject himself in front of passing crowds. Blood can be seen dribbling out of the man's right palm.
