Há muito tmpo que não te via por aqui.
Outra excelente foto da tristez que ainda vai por África. É pena é que não seja vista pelos corruptos que por lá proliferam.

Photos like these have a real eerie feeling to them. I am sure for most of these people, living in this scene may be a difficult realization and I cant say that I like this picture because it may make a mockery of their condition but what can say is that I respect this condition and empathize.
Thanks for sharing

Difficult situation here, for me...
Not knowing what is the situation, nor reading the title "Rwanda genocide", I would dare to say that this photo is pure beauty. I can't help it... my eyes are amazed by the beauty of this "photo"... the colors, the sea of men, women and kids and animals... the distribution through the photo of the different elements and the colors that are really perfect. It is like a painting of the old school. Oh... that lonely silhouette of the kid just in front of the water reflecting the yellow sky! Incredible...
But my brain is distressed by the meaning of it, by what brought these people there together... And I want to cry and shout and say "Enough of that insanity!" And of our inability to stop the mass killing...
Gosh Jose... what do you want me to say????
So, I will simply shut up and look at this photo.
N.B.: I had that nagging feeling that I had seen this photo before... I was right. It's the second time you post it and it is the second time I comment on it... But who cares?... Not me. Not one bit...

Ciao Jose Diogo, grazie per gli auguri e grazie anche per avermi dato modo di rivedere la tua galleria, piena di crude testimonianze di una realtà che troppo spesso rimuoviamo, grandissimo reportagem, immagine dal sapore biblico ed anche molto valida fotograficamente, un grande abraccio, ciao Silvio
