Photographer's Note

Things are getting rather tough this morning. A child barely 2 years old, who cannot really walk, was screaming while helplessly struggling on the hot white sand while his mother works with another sibling on arranging hundreds of wet bricks for drying.
Although normally one expects a two year old to walk around, I estimate the younger child is probably over two because due to malnourishment normal physical development is often slowed down in these children.
The overseer was sitting under an umbrella on an elevated stool to my left; my guess is that because of him the mother was hesitant to come and pick up the child.

This was happening in a fenced off enclosure by the roadside. I pushed the lens through the fence and took the shot without looking through the view finder.

The overseer noticed this and was not very happy about it. I gave him a politely disarming smile and went off.
