Thomas Hafner has traveled to many different places around the world and
taken pictures. My favorite is from Cambodia, called Daily Life in Stung
Meachey (Phnom Penh, Cambodia Digital Photography Dec 2006). The picture is
very vibrant and colorful, and the child has a big warming smile on his face.
However, the picture is of a trash dump and the kid is rummaging through to
find something of value. It is shocking how different countries are. If I
were rummaging through a dump, I probably would not be smiling. For this
young kid it is probably what he is used to. It makes me feel fortunate to
have the things that I do and that I have relatively a much easier life. It
is a beautiful picture.
