When I first took this shot I saw a Mother and toddler eating their main meal of the day in the middle of a side walk. It wasn't until I reviewed the picture again that I realised how difficult life was, as she also has a baby in her lap. The picture was taken in Jaipur India in the walls of the pink city.
