A view of life elsewhere. This is a beautiful picture of life that is not easy.

What a picture of contrasts!

The once bright and gay colors of the posters still showing through despite having partly peeled off the wooden windows...

like his smiling face bright and perked up despite the hard life he obviously leads .

A story unto itself !

There is something about this photo that makes me think it's definitely a picture for National Geographic to consider. It's a tremendous photo and tells us so much....I love this.

My W W is shared. I sure hope you can drop by. Some may quote a movie character from JAWS when they come over for a visit today ---"I think we need a bigger boat"

Happy Wednesday

I wish the kids in this country could see photos like this. Too many teenagers here seem to be of the opinion that they don't have to work or be responsible for anything, that everything should just be handed to them.

I just love this photograph!
