Poor boys in unhealthy business. Well captured in action. You got an excellent light (must be late afternoon sun) and wery good sharpness. Migue, this could be a good entry in any environmental photo competition.

Not a pleasant sight, but it's a story that needs to be told. Well done!

I do admire these two boys looking after themselves. Sometimes all the money earned in recycling is needed to sustain a family. Surving is ever a great challenge. These boys begin knowing how life is hard and it is time to give them some decent career. I do not know India but It seems for me that is turning to the technology development. The society is changing anyway. But I think that recycling may be paid bably yet having someone exploring this business. Nevertheless this is not a work for boys in this age. Normally older people do it. Warm regards. Tomi
