so I was catching up on all I missed over the past couple of days and saw this. I can't believe that no one commented on this pic. The story is horribly sad but IMO the photo captures so much emotion. I think it's a great shot. Together with the details I think it tells a powerful story.
thanks man. as you can see i'm a bit behind too, but i'm getting caught up. i liked it too, and was surprised it wasn't even mentioned. i have another i should put up from the trip.
edit: here are a couple from the house of a lady named reina.
I wrote a little song for you with a melody I'd borrowed put to words that didn't rhyme to repeat what you already knew, as the stones thrown at your window tapped in syncopation.
You kept a distance out of fear you'd break, but what good's a single windchime hanging quiet all alone? The music our collisions would make is the sound that turns "the road that leads us back home" into "home." flickr
