I like your picture. You have not only managed to capture the man and his task but record his shadow as well.
Drawing conclusions from a single picture would be worrying.
For one we can admire a man's strength, ingenuity and skill.
Or we can see the high price of owning livestock and can realise the poverty.

A frame can lead or mislead us in understanding the world.
Yours does a good job in helping us understand.

Amazing what these porters do to earn a paltry wage.
