a scene in one of Manila's slums. the naked child standing on the left seems to be waiting for his turn to be bathed. btw, this was taken in the railway. and those are houses on the left. yes, you can live beside railways in the Philippines.

I was just out at an exhibition about homeless people here in Paris, geez, everywhere life is hard and colors do not change anything. This is a superb photo of reportage kind, superb because of your focus and very subtle DOF (depth of Feeling, of course).
