For those of you who have been checking this blog for a bit you will recognize this shot. For those of you who are seeing this for the first time, this is a child that I stopped and talked to (with Kate translating of course) while on a tour through the Dominican Republic. Everytime the children saw a tour bus pass they started running after the bus screaming "Candy!". No one saw this little guy and he couldn't get out to the road to chase us, so when we stopped I walked back and gave him some candy and tried to talk with him.
The reason I am posting it again is because of this website called Photo Friday
and its weekly assignments. This weeks theme is "poverty" and I tried all week in Toronto to get a shot that did the theme justice, but I didn't really get anything with as much feeling as the above shot you see. I reworked the shot from the original and now I can't tell which one I like better. As always, click the picture for a bigger view.
The Photo Friday
website is weekly contest, so if you like my shot feel free to vote
. I am #451 after you follow the link (EssPea | Photo). Thanks!
