Looking for food - Haiti
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Looking for food -  Haiti
Looking for food - Haiti
This photo was taken in Feb 09 in Haiti. The boy is climbing into a slaughterhouse looking for pieces of discarded meat for his family. Even in the best of times Haiti offers a very hard life.

    Just saw this in Editor's Picks, Bill. I think it is a wonderful capture -- so symbolic. I see the boy as each and every Haitian and also as Haiti as a nation. What a struggle they have ahead. The selective color works perfectly here.
