Jim, good pic, though I would prefer to see more of the surroundings in this case. The little girl reminds me of my own trip through South America and witnessing extreme poverty close-up, especially in Bolivia. I came to the realization then, that many of the poor in this world are given absolutely no chance at all, suppressed forever by those at the top. What I saw on that trip, still haunts me to this day.

Very well captured, GJ: the expression, the color, and the story in the eyes.
