Great shot, Al!

Excellent example of the drama in `real life`. The out of focus rock on the left bothers me a bit, although it does show us how close you must have been to your subject.
Al, where was this taken?? Mexico, So. America?

You must have been walking very quietly! smile
This is a wonderful, true-to-life, capture. The brooms, the quilt, the shoes...all lend a mystery to what is going on in this person`s life. Poignant.

Great moment, Al. I agree with Valerie about the rock to the left...however, I couldn`t tell you how I would`ve done it differently! It is hard to get things perfect when you are shooting things while they happen! Nice work - great impact

Very well observed, Al! Deeply touching, social photography!

shades to match the harsh reality

a life of no hope
nothing ahead except probably an even deeper poverty - and oh this never-ending this cursed misery

a future as grim as the reaper

we take pictures of it to later take delight in sharing the wonderful compositions with fellow enthusiasts about the controversial art and rigours of photography

is the contrast between the tormented lives of these subjects of ours and our expensive sophisticated gear not harsh enough to thrash us within an ace of our hearts
