Looking back (at yourself)

Some pictures haunt you. You get an idea and try to realize it. Most of the time, it doesn’t work. But sometimes, you finally manage to get something. It’s never really what you were looking for, but it still remains a nice feeling.

I am frequently surrounded by children asking for pictures or simply for a smile. Unfortunately, after two years here, I can see an increase in the number of children asking for money. It is becoming an issue with children (or their parents) preferring to beg in the streets or to wash against payment International staff’s car instead of going to school.
