Photographer's Note

Dozens of children search this massive garabage dump for everything and anything they can sell or keep. Behemoth trucks move in and out of the area non-stop. Each load of trash is a promise of a meal to come.

This is the 2nd photo in the photo story I am posting here on TE. While I think this may not be the most powerful image in the entire series, I believe I need to include it to move the story along before featuring more compelling photos. This was the first time I shot telephoto in a while. After an hour of shooting on location, my mind became numb from the heat, smell, and the reality of the place. As a result, I feel this is one of the less creative shots I took that day. Regardless, play come back tomorrow to see the 3rd photo in the series.
