We too have shanty towns, but not in such pleasing locations, an excellent capture and presentation. Carol

I assume it's the Shanty Town of which you gave us a peek through that window, Marian.
A fine study.

The divided frame is interesting (clever idea) depicting the beautiful and the lack of it in the shanty town.
