I came across this barefoot little boy near the Klipperdrift River next to the Napier informal settlement, who managed a wistful smile for me despite the freezing cold...

thanks for the positive comment... I didnt miss the 'little bit of ear'... I cropped the photo tight to lose a lot of distracting background 'stuff'. I thought it worked better that way without any distractions...

Children are not born into this world as equals and this shot describes so well how the other half - lives!! Excellent life capture Neill which tells a sad story superbly. Love the way you have photgraphed that feeling.

Dave.
