Geo1: So much information in the photograph and the photo description.
Breaking stones for so little, heartbreaking! The sweater speaks volumes; the hole in the sweater tells us this child is from abject poverty. Wearing probably all that she has. Brings tears to my eyes.
Beautiful "portrait,' if I may use that term - something that so many photographers take for a living.
This photo brings the living to us. We count our blessings that we and our children are fed.
Masterful photo. Deserves a Pulitzer!
Thank you Werli.
