The Second Kind of Sadness..

By BURNBLUE  
The Family lived near the sea in a almost derelict building facing the ocean in Havana with a wooden staircase that was slanting to the left.
Use to call there everyday and chill for a while with them.

I studied this for a long while Si,

Its imperfections , its intrusions , its peculiar gravitation.

But then again , its harmony is beautiful.

Quality.

I have a feeling you must have lots of stories you could tell. Your captures of people only tell us a fraction. But they do give us an insight into the lives of those less fortunate. Beautifully emotional image........Sandy

Derek makes a good point Si, your work on this trip and possibly others is not just about pointing the camera a clicking the shutter, you've gone that extra mile with these families which has yielded you wonderful images.

The image and brief story has a rawness about it, life isn't all about play stations etc.
