The child sells popcorn on the roadside, constantly dodging oncoming traffic, I noticed he was admiring the flower for a long time. Perhaps he was imaging how there is still hope in his life, sadly right after i took the picture his 'boss' came and snatched the flower and gave him another lot of popcorn packets for him to sell. This was taken on the Bannani Railway crossing Highway in Dhaka, Bangladesh

After I read your narrative the photo achieved a new meaning - filled me with sadness for a wasted childhood. May he find true beauty in life to sustain him Smile

@Ian Thank you Smile, @Hermanus You are right, I hope someday he does find that happiness, What's really sad is there is a lot of people out there like him.
