I really don't like see children in this situation. They should either be playing or in school. But this is the reality of our world. Some children must help their parents get through the day.

This was unexpected for me because I photographed this in a very far away area from the center of town. I was used to seeing people in this place earn their living through planting or fishing. Most of them don't have jobs but they get through the day by helping themselves with the bounty of nature. I am used to seeing sights like this in cities but not in where I found her to be. We brought goodies for the children and I offered her one. She accepted but shyly accepted it. I just hope that it brought a smile to her face.
